Archers fans flock to website

IT’S not often Spike reports UK-wide tales, preferring instead to concentrate on Scotland stories.

But it couldn’t resist relaying this message from the BBC, about its long-running farming radio drama, The Archers: “BBC Radio 4 welcomed 1.8 million visitors to its website in October, fuelled by massive interest in whether Ruth Archer would consummate her relationship with Sam the herdsmen in the 15,000th episode of The Archers.

“The Archers clocked up almost a million on-demand listening requests via the BBC Radio Player during the month.”

P.S. They didn’t.
