‘SOME POSHOS OFF THE RADIO’ – ie Emma Thompson and the Who Dares Wins lot – perform a bunch of old Douglas Adams/Clive Anderson/Griff Rhys-Jones Not The Nine O’Clock News-esque revue sketches and get mistaken for naughty ‘alternative’ comedians (and asked to make a ‘proper’ album to boot). Letters of outrage to Feedback ensue, as in fact do several major careers in heavyweight drama.

Creamguide's Pick of the Day
We have no truck with those people who complain the Beeb, and the British audience, don’t do Eurovision “properly”, because we’ll do it how we want, thank you very much, and the ratings suggest most people are absolutely fine with our approach. However, we do get a bit fed up with retrospectives that simply recycle the same half dozen clips, so we welcome this heavyweight ninety minute epic which looks set to be the most in-depth treatment since the documentary shown as part of TV Hell back in 1992. With Wogan and Norton involved it won’t be entirely serious, and rightly so, but it’s a more thoughtful look than we usually get, with some less familiar clips to boot.
