‘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
More Churchillalia later in the week, which is like Futurama technically out of Creamguide’s dateline, although at the opposite end, but we’re including this biography of the great man because it’s actually from the Cream era, being made in 1992. It’s on for the next four afternoons and we recall Harry Enfield discussing it on Have I Got News For You because he was fascinated by the revelation Churchill used to like walking around Downing Street naked, even in the presence of visiting dignitaries. Although we’re not entirely sure if that’s in here or Harry made it up.
