* EraSpecificPersonality: Some of the central characters were altered a bit in the transition from ''Radio Active'' to ''KYTV'', mostly because of how the actors didn't always look the part they'd been playing. Mike Channel, for one, is repeatedly mentioned as old and over the hill in ''Radio Active'', but in ''KYTV'' he's roughly the same age as the rest of the cast, and, while still the DeadpanSnarker ButtMonkey of the show, has lost his self-pitying pathos. Likewise, the radio version of Anna Daptor is hinted to be a fat slob, but the on-screen version is quite slim and pretty. In "The Fit and Fat Show", part of the humour comes from the overweight glutton Anna being the last person you'd want to take weight-loss advice from - a joke which falls flat in the tie-in book where it's illustrated with photos of the not-even-remotely-podgy Helen Atkinson-Wood.

* AbsenteeActor:
** Mike Channel is uncharacteristically absent from the 1987 episode "God Alone Knows," probably because the host of Radio Active's religious show - the Right Reverend Reverend Wright - is also played by Angus Deayton.
** Similarly in the ''KYTV'' episode "Speak for Yourself", Mike Channel is absent (except in a reused clip) because Angus Deayton is playing Sir Kenneth Yellowhammer throughout.
** Helen Atkinson-Wood doesn't take part in a few episodes, with her place taken by Morwenna Banks.
* ActorExistenceLimbo: As Geoffrey Perkins died in 2008, the character of Mike Flex was absent from the 2016 stage revival. In the radio broadcast of said revival, one of his old skits was used as TheStinger.

* BritainIsOnlyLondon: A RunningGag in the early episodes featured ident for KVTV that had "real people" saying "You're Watching KYTV," as a parody of [[http://www2.tv-ark.org.uk/itvlondon/carlton-idents1.html the ones used by Carlton]], so it's unlikely that most viewers who didn't live in London or the Home Counties (the ITV region Carlton covered) would have gotten the point first time round...



* TheDeterminator: Martin Brown may not be able to do anything right, but he never gives up and never loses his childlike enthusiasm.

* TheDeterminator: Martin Brown may not be able to do anything right, but he never gives up and never loses his childlike enthusiasm. And he could occasionally come out on top - in the episode "Backchat," he comes close to be fired - when he tells Sir Norman Tonsil that he has a recording of Sir Norman at the Christmas party which the listeners might to hear... and Sir Norman immediately decides to reinstate Martin his choice of any show to present.
--> '''Mike Flex''': Well ''Backchat'' will be back next week... presented by Martin Brown apparently.
