TV: W is for...

Windmill

THAT’S LIFER CHRIS SERLE stoically presided over this fantastic Sunday lunchtime BBC classic clips round-up based around a different theme every week: ‘Night’, ‘Holidays’ and so on. Ace theme tune ripped off ‘Two Tribes’ but to good effect. Weird impressionist Windmill logo popped up in odd animations, including memorable ‘space invader’ game. Sparse black studio, peppered with old gramophones and stuff like that. Classic Comedy Moment every week, i.e. Margot falling over in the mud. That London-Brighton-in-three-minutes clip turned up a few times as well. Named after the Beeb’s Windmill Road archive in Brentford.

    Your one stop weekly repository for bits of Milligan’s Q series, the Goodies, Rutland Weekend Television, Monty Python and other great stuff permanently shat on in careless fashion by the BBC. Bring it back, that’s what I say.

    And featuring that clip of Alan Whicker interviewing John Paul Getty in his massive mansion, which looked really cold and horrible.
