P think that might be your memory playing tricks. It was absolutely the
norm in those days for comedies to have a "laugh track". The BBC indeed
used a studio audience, and the bits shot on location were shown on screens.

Rewatching the 1st series a few years after 1st TX, I was surprised to hear
laughter as I didn't recall it. What is recorded in the studio & what is
broadcast is a matter of choice. There are mics recording performers & mics
recording audience. This gives volume control & means that there is choice
of whether or not to include audience response in the broadcast. However,
the performers pauses would be puzzling and weird if the laughter was
omitted. A classic would be spoiled. "SMELL MY CHEESE!"

Author yottskry12 ( ago)
I said "laugh track" not "canned laughter". Your quote was Armando
Ianucci's response to criticism of the laughter in the *second* series. I'm
sure the original broadcast of the 1st series had no laughter. If you
Google Alan Partridge Laugh Track, you'll see I'm not alone in this.
Approximately half the people on the threads seem to think it's always had
a laugh track and half are with me. I wonder if a few episodes were
broadcast without, or if they just upped the volume for series two.

Author Debunk Brother ( ago)
Google this: "A spokeswoman for the BBC says the show did not use canned
laughter but had been filmed in front of a live studio audience. Location
shots (OUTSIDE) were shown to the audience on plasma screens" And this from
Armando Ianucci: 'It's not canned laughter. We recorded it in front of a
studio audience". Watch the performers wait for laughter to end before
continuing. Or perhaps you think it' was faked by the people who brought us
the CGI 911 and the Moon non-landing. Back of the net.

Author yottskry12 ( ago)
Except when they were initially broadcast there was no laugh track. It
really annoyed me when it was repeated and the laugh track had been added.
Also, given that much of it was filmed OUTSIDE, are you sure it's a live

It's not laugh track. It was recorded in front of a live studio audience,
although, I've noticed some laughs being reused occasionally (in
post-production) in some scenes. You can discern the presence of the
audience by the pauses and phrasing as the actors accommodate the audience
response and try not to throw any - of those lovingly crafted and honed -
lines away.
