‘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
It used to be that everyone in Britain went to the same place on holiday every year, and certainly Creamguide did that with its annual jaunts to Conwy in North Wales, where we had many happy times, though the other Christmas we nipped back for old time’s sakes and were amazed we exhausted the town centre in half an hour, and heaven knows how we used to get a week out of it. In this series Len will be taking a celebrity back to some old haunts, every day at this time, kicking off with Dave Myers on the Isle of Man.
