    • Roald Dahl: The possibility that a large woman might one day swallow a small clergyman is one that has always appealed to me. My mind first started wandering in this direction one day in the zoo, while I stood watching a huge snake swallowing a live rat. The rat didn't wish to be swallowed, he was against it, but the snake had hypnotized him. So he had no chance, and down he went. The keeper told me it would take the snake five days to digest the rat, and that's when I got to wondering how long a large woman would take to digest a clergyman with all his clothes on, if he were not too big. That, of course, would depend on the woman. But I know one or two who could have him for breakfast and still feel hungry at the end of it.

    Notes (2)

    • This episode is based on Roald Dahl's story Georgy Porgy.

    • The Bishop of Norwich stepped in to stop a scene from Georgy Porgy from being shot in a Norfolk parish church, after he learned that several actresses would be seen sitting naked in the pews. The scene was eventually shot in a former church in Norwich which had been converted into a coffee bar, and the actresses wore body stockings.
