I just looked (on Youtube) at an earlier adaptation under the peculiar "Swallows and Amazons for ever" title, which was actually BS. I'd always been puzzled about why they (the Beeb) had used that title for programmes that didn't feature any of the SAs at all, although there's a connection via the Ds

My recollection is that it covered both CC and BS, though maybe you've only seen the BS part.

I seem to remember reading at the time that they planned, or half-planned half-hoped, to do all the books eventually (with perhaps the exception of PD and ML), and just started with the Broads books, but unfortunately no more of the project ever came to fruition.
