Episode Summary

The Money Programme
After a motorcycle accident resulting from an untimely sneeze, TV and radio personality Victor Lewis-Smith has been deposited in a BBC-owned hospital that serves as a dumping ground for burnt-out broadcasters, scriptwriters, and other unwanted TV people. As Victor lies in a full body cast suffering from a comic coma, a doctor hooks his life-support machine up to a television in order to stimulate his subconscious by pumping his brain full of dull old programs. Trapped within his body and searching in vain (and in vein) for a way out, Victor brings new meaning to the idea of introspection as he embarks on a taxi tour through his ventricles. In the first of a series of weekly phone pranks indulging his alter ego's need to "lash out" at society, Victor phones a masseur who has placed an ad in a newspaper.moreless
