Trivia

London Weekend Television supremo Michael Grade's original inspiration for the series was the 1937 book "The Education of H*Y*M*A*N K*A*P*L*A*N" by Leo Rosten, set in a New York night class for English learners. He was also responsible for cancelling the show, when he felt it had fulfilled all the potential comedy from the situation. See more »

User Reviews

the best all-in-one comedy!
17 July 2002 | by hafiziaSee all my reviews

This has to be the best comedy ever created on earth. It features everything descriptive of the world. Of the people that make it, of their relations with each other, and of their diversity, with English as their main component for unity. I remember having good laughs with this series when it was re-run on Malaysia's RTM Channel 2 for the umpteenth time between 1993-1994. It was also the programme that made me love the English language even more. No other comedy seem to catch the wit this one had.
