Thank You Cabin Pressure
A fan project requiring the help of all Cabin Pressure fans from around the world! See the side pages for more information. Deadline for submissions has passed.

If you haven’t had enough happy feelings today after hearing from Mr. Finnemore himself, the National Literacy Trust sent me this email:

I just wanted to send you an email to say thank you so much for choosing to fundraise for the National Literacy Trust. You’ve raised an absolutely fantastic amount, and I cannot tell you how much this is appreciated by us. If you would like any more information about the charity, or be involved further with our work please let me know.

 Well done, fandot! :)

# admin note

Just wanted to quickly pop in a note to thank you all for the lovely comments re: the project & its handover. It still seems a bit surreal that it happened. It was an insane privilege to be there, and one I certainly do not take for granted.

I’ve checked the fundraising page recently and seen that the activity has somewhat slowed down (which is fine - deadline’s passed anyway, though the page is still alive and kickin’). But you can all pat yourselves on the back, because the National Literacy Trust is getting a total of  £2,382.02 (£2,265.27 + £116.75 in Gift Aid) in honor of the Cabin Pressure cast and crew. Well done!

… and that concludes the project! Thanks again to everyone who participated in either (or both!) submitting material for the video or fundraising - the project wouldn’t have shaped out how it did without you all!

Once there’s word about when the final episode airs, we’ll post something about it. But until then - continue having fun relistening to episodes, playing the Traveling Lemon & the Game with Words of One Sound (and others), eating Toblerone and dragonfruit and drinking Talisker (if you can afford the latter), and creating things that celebrate our beloved airdot.





This is our way to show our appreciation to the brilliant BBC Radio 4 series “Cabin Pressure”, to the entire cast and crew, and of course, the ‘real’ captain of this ship, Mr. John Finnemore. 

We have used the “Thank you, Captain Dinosaur” tune from the radio series “John Finnemore’s Souvenir Programme” (Series 2 episode 6), and the lyrics were written and performed by Brynhild and Madi.

We’d also like to congratulate the entire team from the thankyoucabinpressure project for their wonderful initiative and for their fundraising campaign. Brilliant work!

This was fun! :D

A very lovely song tribute to Cabin Pressure!

And here are the cards and the DVDs! The map cards have key quotes from each character. The red dots on the cards are - can you guess it? - the cities that have episodes named after them.

The inside cover art was designed by the lovely Cumberbum. (The user, not Benedict’s rear end. Okay. Stopping this before I dig myself a hole in the ground to lie in… <_<)

Forgot to include pictures of what went INSIDE the bags (and their closeups). Here they are! :) (Don’t worry - Roger did get a DVD too. Just forgot to put it in the photo!)

The figurines are made by the very talented Pei. You can find her Tumblr here.

So… where do I even begin?

I’m going to get my thank you’s out of the way first – none of this would have been possible without David Tyler’s extreme generosity and faith in the project. I had sent a rather cheeky email to Pozzitive Productions back in November, informing them about the project and asking if there was a way to give them the final results (I’ll note that this was NOWHERE near the deadline and we were still in the early stages). Two months later and after thinking that the email had fallen into the bin, I got an email back from David – with a ticket.

I also need to thank my friend M (nickname in case she didn’t want her name posted up) who was my amazing videographer and photographer during the gift distribution bit. How she wasn’t shaking behind the camera is beyond me – I would have been a nervous wreck! So thanks dear for being an awesome friend and helping me out with this.

And of course – I have to thank YOU all because you submitted videos and photos and money to the project and the fundraiser. Over the past few months I have been absolutely blown away by everyone’s loveliness and generosity. These past few hours have also been a bit surreal, with all the wonderful asks, tweets, and messages. It’s just been incredible, and I am glad to be part of such a supportive fandot.

Now. Onto the good stuff and what you all have been waiting for. :)

Note: there are casting spoilers of non-permanent characters in what is about to be explained. If you do not want to hear who was there at the recording, please do not read this account.

At the same time, if you are reading this in search of plot spoilers, you’re not going to get them here.

(And if you’re here to read about spoilers – as in air flaps on the wings that produce drag and not a lot of lift – then I’m going to take this moment to apologize for my lack of knowledge on aviation technology, so you’re fresh out of luck here…)

P.S. I write novel length entries about events that mean a lot to me, so sit back with a cup tea and get comfortable – this will be basically an essay.

P.P.S. Sorry my photos of the cast pre-gift giving are a bit crap. I tried to hide my hideous red focus light that may have actually been needed to make the photos a bit better…

Some spoilers regarding casting here, so don’t watch if you don’t want to know two other characters that emerge other than the main cast.

But otherwise - here’s the cast and David reacting to news about the project! Enjoy :)

(Report will come up later)

(SORRY! Realized that the last one wasn’t fully edited one… which shows you not to upload stuff when you’re sleep deprived - please reblog this one!)

In addition to the Thank You video, I put together a video of the donation messages with some fun animations (quality may be a bit iffy at times SORRY I had to go through and download a whole new set of programs to make this work). This has been included with the video of Thank You’s for each cast member’s DVD.

Check it out! Complete with lemons and polar bears. :) (Messages can also be found on the JustGiving page)

… and then you get to see my mug face at the beginning. Skip over that if you’d like… <_<
