" The one where Matt played the wrong Opening Credits "

So here it is, it's the big 200th show and no one can really believe how many people make the (in many cases) long and arduous journey to East Putney to join us for this very special episode.

In this insane programme one budget carrier sets a new transatlantic record, a TV crew is charged with deliberately bringing fake explosives on-board a chartered flight and one passenger receives a lifetime ban for wearing the contents of his suitcase.

As is what appears to now be customary whenever PTUK and APG join forces, the mandatory 'Nugget' challenge between Cap'n Al and Dr Steph took place - Who won? You'll have to watch to find out.

Thank you so much for being such wonderful friends to the show and here's to many more episodes of the show.

From all of us who are involved in PTUK, thanks for being our friends.
