Time Gentlemen Please
Sky 1,

2000

| Comedy

Time Gentlemen Please is a British sitcom. Commissioned by Sky One, it was primarily written by Richard Herring and Al Murray and ran for two series between 2000 and 2002. The show is set in a run-down pub whose xenophobic landlord, 'The Governor' (or 'Guv'), has some very old-fashioned views on how a pub should be run. The Governor is an evolution of Al Murray's stage persona 'The Pub Landlord', which he had used in stand up since 1994. Behind the bar Guv has help from Steve, a rather useless young lad, and Janet, a loud-mouthed Australian who is drawn to the job, for as the 'Guv' says Australians are "bred for bar work; it's instinct... instinct!". At the end of Series One Janet leaves to return to her homeland and in Series Two is replaced by Connie, a young student who had previously been employed by Guv's arch-rival Greg Thompson.

The Week That Wasn't
Sky 1,

2018

| Comedy

The events depicted in this TV show are entirely fictitious, no matter how believable. Any similarity to any real situations or conversations are merely coincidental. The Week That Wasn't is a Sky One comedy show where famous faces are thrown into an alternate week of events that may not have happened (but probably should have). Join the UK's leading impressionists as they literally put words into the mouths of celebrities, seriously dubbing them up the wrong way. Master mimic Alistair McGowan is reunited with Ronni Ancona for the first time since their The Big Impression show, together with a host of brilliant new impressionists Matt Forde, Luke Kempner and Jess Robinson mischievously re-voicing existing footage. From celeb gossip to sporting moments and political scandals, nothing and no-one is off limits. Enter an irreverent alternate reality where the hosts of The Great British Bake Off add slightly less family-friendly ingredients to their baking masterpieces (...if you've ever wondered why Paul Hollywood looks so relaxed on screen...); three famous football pundits take a break from post-match analysis to talk about their fascinating dating tips; and join the Queen as she partakes in a little retail therapy in advance the royal wedding. From royalty to showbiz royalty, Ant & Dec clearly display warning signs of more trouble to come - while even the notoriously thick-skinned (let's hope) President of Russia, Vladimir Putin comes in for The Week That Wasn't treatment. Recorded just hours before broadcast, prepare to see and hear famous faces the way you've never seen or heard them before.
