The best Mickey take...EVER
27 June 2006 | by See all my reviews

I remember well the birth of radio 1 and how the DJ's of that era became more famous than their true talent ever really warranted. The ego, name dropping and self publicity was totally shameless. What Enfield and Whitehouse achieve here is a superbly made and well deserved re-balancing of the books. The more you remember of of the 60's to 90's radio 1 the more you'll see it's relevance. The script and acting is out of this world and I'm currently trying to source this on DVD. I have a very old VHS copy of this but would panic if it ever got lost or the the tape broke :)) Check out cable TV schedules, this is a not to be missed Mickey take of the very very highest order. Well done guys, it's right up there with Norbert Smith - A Life.
