The Archers are real – there is no cast

Welcome to the world of Archers Anarchists, the unauthorised and unofficial fan club for listeners to The Archers. As you will be aware, The Archers is a real life fly-on-the-wall documentary about one of the strangest villages in England.


Ambridge is a village inhabited by social misfits, murderers and nauseatingly cosy people.  The most mild-mannered listeners would like to pour boiling oil on the likes of Shulugh, Rooooth, Dave and Loathsome Lizzie. It is a village so smug that even the animals are pretty irritating. 


@rchers @narchists was founded in 1995 and this year celebrates 28 years battling against castism, one of the greatest evils known to man or, particularly, beast. Castism is that calumny perpetrated by the BBC who insist on parading and exploiting a whole bunch of misguided souls, described as “the cast”.


Any self-respecting listener knows that the Archers are real – there is no cast. When you have been listening day in day out for perhaps as long as 60 years or more, it can be deeply upsetting suddenly to be presented by some ludicrous photograph purporting to represent one of Ambridge’s residents.


@rchers @narchists bans the use of words such as script, actor, cast etc. We permit no attempt at photographic representation of Ambridge residents or institutions. We exist to fight castism in all its sinister manifestations. We also have a healthy disrespect for most of the Ambridge residents and welcome the maximum amount of mayhem in the village. There are enough people looking out for the underdog so we tend to promote the overdog.


Our supporters include, but are not limited to librarians, street sweepers, musicians, clergy of various denominations, small time crooks, teachers, students, lawyers, dentists, doctors, politicians and the unemployable. 


The Archers are real – there is no cast
