One of the funniest sitcoms I have ever seen.
22 June 2001 | by (Dumfries, Scotland) – See all my reviews

Concerned with running the 'pirate' Brixton Broadcasting Company and allowing for the attempts of the local, obsessed, police sergeant to stop this. The interplay between Vas Blackwood & Lenny Henry was truly something to behold. All in all 'Crucial' viewing even in 'post Thatcher' Britain.
