Big Train

Show Summary

Before and after Father Ted, Graham Linehan and Arthur Matthews had been sketch show writers; contributing to the likes of Spitting Image, The Day Today and the Friday and Saturday Night Armistice. Big Train picked up on the surrealism found in their earlier work. From the World Stare-Out Championship to herds of wild jockeys being hunted by The Artist Formerly Known as Prince, from show jumping firefighters to the most erratic 100m runner ever seen, the show broke new ground, was much imitated and, arguably, launched the careers of Simon Pegg, Catherine Tate, Mark Heap and Amelia Bullmore.

  • THE CLOSER IS THE BIG RELEASE THIS WEEK, WITH A BLU-RAY UPGRADE FOR THE FIRST SEASON OF WEEDS. THE SUBSEQUENT RELEASES IN THIS WEEK'S ROUND-UP ARE MOSTLY A COLLECTION OF GOLDEN OLDIES LIKE F TROOP, RAWHIDE, BIG TRAIN, AND THE ANDY GRIFFITH SHOW.
