Question: Has Joe (Pauline's husband) been a narrator for a children's program in the past? I recognize his voice and am sure its something to do with kids TV.

Chosen answer: Yes he was the narrater for the kids TV show Mr Benn. This was the program where Mr Benn would go into a costume shop each episode and try on a different outfit. He would then "be" the character he dressed up as.

Question: Is outdoor Albert Square a set or a real life location? If its a set, how do they get the trains to run by so realistically and how do they get so many extras? If it's real, where is it?

Chosen answer: Albert Square is a set in the BBC studios in Borehamwood, on the north side of London. The trains, to the best of my knowledge, are simply a bit of the old TV magic. As far as the extras go - it's not difficult to get extras in reasonable numbers through agencies.

Question: Why in the kitchen at the Masoods' house do they have a 4 gang light switch? 1 would be for the main light. There are no under cabinet lights, the outside lights wouldn't be switched from here either. I'm an electrician and every time I see the switch it annoys me.

Chosen answer: Most likely a mistake by the set designers or it's a recycled set which already had the switch on (they just repaint and add other fittings).
