Very funny, and very clever
2 September 2005 | by steve-barry-1See all my reviews

This was a short lived series of 10 or 20 minute episodes put out on BBC2 in the late 80's / early 90's. The premise was simple. Devise a ludicrous story about normal events, then search Pathe, BBC, NBC, etc archives to find suitable B&W footage to support the stories. After assembling this, find some talented voice over artists (Jim Broadbent, Ronnie Anacona, etc) and voilà, you have a winning formula for a cult TV show.

Me and my flat-mates used to literally cry with laughter at the absurd story lines and the stupid images accompanying it.

Favourite episodes:

The Queen Mother loses her favourite Corgi "Shafty-boy". Barry "Bazza" Bagshaw, the nations favourite sportsman. A Welsh child stops believing in Jesus so the Pope cancels Christmas
