- COMPLETE SHOW ARCHIVE
A full list of all the shows, and the associated commentaries on this forum, is available HERE.
(Note: Of the 3,001 shows, this forum has commentaries for 2,993 of them - the 8 missing are shows 47 - 52 and 57, aired in late 2005; and show 2,306 which remains unaired).
- MISTERAL'S DEFINITIVE SPREADSHEET
Forum member MisterAl compiled and regularly updated a spreadsheet detailing ALL the shows, including info on the offers, boxes and players. It is available HERE.
- TOTAL NUMBER OF SHOWS
3,001 broadcast over 11 years (31/10/05 to 23/12/16). The final show, on 23 December 2016, was show #2,985.
(16 shows were not included in the show count - see below).
- 2,051 HOURS
Approx. half of all the shows were 45 minutes long (36 exc. adverts) and half were 60 mins (46 exc. adverts). That means, exc. adverts, there was about 2,051 hours of DoND. It'd take about 3 months to watch them continuously back-to-back!
- NOEL EDMONDS
Noel presented 2,999 of the 3,001 shows; the two he didn't present were the '8 Out of 10 Cats' special and the 10th anniversary shows. There was additionally a short special for Comic Relief with Catherine Tate's 'Nan' in 2007, although this wasn't a proper show.
Most of the shows first aired on Channel 4 (some on More4) and were usually repeated in the early hours of the following morning. Other repeats were aired through Noel's 'Hall of Fame'; through an online vote where people could vote to decide which 'favourite' would be repeated; and also on More4. The Freeview channel Challenge regularly airs episodes from 2005 to 2008; newer shows may be aired at a later date.
