Can you match the Archer to the actor?

The Radio 4 favourite will be decamping to the Radio Times Festival in September - but can you identify the faces that belong to those familiar voices?


Almost sixty-five years after the first official episode played out on the Light Programme, The Archers is now approaching its 18,000th episode.


At the Radio Times Festival next month, the show’s editor, Sean O’Connor, will take us behind the scenes of the world’s longest-running radio soap, and will be joined by Charles Collingwood (Brian Aldridge), Carole Boyd (Lynda Snell), Louiza Patikas (Helen Archer) and Timothy Watson (Rob Titchener).

In the meantime, a picture quiz: test your Ambridge knowledge by seeing if you can match the Archer to the actor…

Sean O’Connor and cast will be at Radio Times Festival at The Green at Hampton Court Palace on Saturday 26th September. Ambridge stalwart Charles Collingwood will also be giving an acting masterclass and Secret Sounds of The Archers will reveal how country life is recreated in a studio.
