* CrossOver: With Gardener's Question Time, of all things. Eric Robson and some of the panel appeared in ''The Archers'', and on Easter Sunday 2011 several Archers characters asked questions on GQT. The odd presenter from other BBC series has turned up AsHimself or herself to open the village fete or something as well And the occassional Royal has visited.
** Sort-of appeared on Hancock's Half-hour as "The Bowmans"

* ShownTheirWork: even with the series' edutainment roots very much a thing of the past, great care is taken to ensure that it presents an accurate view of the intricacies of farming
** There is an urban legend that farmers have been known to write in and complain if they used the wrong [[StockSoundEffect animal sound effect]]... although the BBC did realise quite early on that they were dealing with a listenership that had expert knowledge, and took pains to ensure the animal sounds were appropriate to the scene. The BBC's library of animal sound effects is now unparelleled, and a large proportion of this is down to the longevitry of this show.

* VariationsOnAThemeSong: The Archers always uses the same piece of music ("Barwick Green", a 1924 piece by Yorkshire composer Arthur Wood) as its theme tune, which passage is used depends on whether the episode is ordinary or dramatic.
