Brilliant, and sadly missed
8 January 2003 | by (West Midlands, England) – See all my reviews

The axing of The Big Breakfast was a tragedy for British television. To lose a show that revolutionised TV viewing showed great folly on Channel 4's behalf. I was lucky enough to appear on the last edition of the BB, and the amount of work involved in bringing the show to air was immense. There is nothing like it on TV anymore.
