Trivia

One of the most persistent stories over the years is about Spike Milligan's T-shirt with Arabic lettering. Supposedly it was discovered that the Arabic lettering translated to "hashish" only after the show was aired. This was untrue. Milligan's T-shirt actually says "Kuwait", a reference to his own television series Q6 (1969), which had been renamed in various versions over the years to "Q8" in one of its incarnations. Kuwait = Q8. See more »
