    BBC (ended 1997)
    The Brittas Empire was a popular BBC1 Television programme that ran from 1991 to 1997 with two Christmas Specials and various variety shorts including Get Fit With Brittas, six 10-minute programmes offering advice on fitness and good health. Gordon Brittas is a Leisure Centre manager with a dream. Due to the unexplained collapse of his last Leisure Centre during his time in temporary charge, he was given a glowing reference and 'encouraged' to take up a managerial position at Whitbury Leisure Centre. His 'loyal' staff have stories of their own, like Carole Parkinson, the receptionist, whose husband has left her, forcing her to keep her baby in the drawer under her desk. Also Tim Whistler and Gavin Featherly, the fitness instructors whose relationship Brittas always seems to be oblivious to. Julie Porter, Brittas' secretary, is always 'too busy' to do anything for him, and constantly looking for chances to show him up. Linda Perkin, the ever-ready staff member who always believes what Brittas says is best. Laura Lancing, Brittas' hard-working deputy manager (dry), is in and out of relationships with her estranged husband, Michael T. Farrell (III). Finally, Colin Weatherby, Brittas' deputy manager (wet) is keen and devoted to anything Brittas says is best, but isn't the cleanest or healthiest of people and always has a bandage over the wound on his hand. Whatever chaotic incidents occur, Brittas and his staff emerge unscathed, from ceiling collapses, rooms full of ice, other world invaders, tropical spiders and propane gas explosions.moreless

    Comic Relief

    BBC
    Comic Relief is the BBCs biennial fund raising event, which raises millions for the charity of the same name. The charity supports people suffering both in the UK and the third world.
    Comic Relief began on Christmas Day 1985 with a fund raising event on the BBC's Late, Late Breakfast Show hosted by Noel Edmonds. More live events followed until finally Comic Relief was allowed to take over the BBCs main channel on February 5th 1988 for the first of the 'Red Nose Day' variety shows. The result has been a phenomenal success, gaining national cult status and taking over the normal life of millions of people who pull out all the stops to do something seriously daft for charity and put their hands in their pockets for a good cause. The most common thing to see in the UK, in the run up to Red Nose day, is the Red Nose itself which has taken on many different forms over the past 20 years.
    The effect of Comic Relief's variety show cannot be understated, raising the total raised from £15 million in 1985 to £337 million in 2003 and all of it goes to charity.
    Each 6-hour show is an amalgamation of hundreds of TV Celebrities, Comedians and Musicians work, as they all pull together to partly amuse the British public, but most importantly make sure we know exactly why they're doing it. Regular film inserts are featured demonstrating the poor life people suffer and what we, the viewers can do about it. Celebrities like Lenny Henry, Dawn French, Jennifer Saunders, Billy Connelly, Victoria Wood and Davina McCall deliberately subject themselves to poverty and famine in Ethiopia and other third world countries to create devastatingly real and poignant accounts of what the more unfortunate people around the world have to put up with every day of their lives.
    This isn't just a show, it's a national institution and without it, there would be a lot more people a lot worse off around the world today.moreless

    BBC (ended 2008)
    Alice Chenery and her friends, Cleo and Milly, return still seeking love. Unfortunately, Alice has not reached her quota of frogs and various reptiles before fate gifts her with a soul mate. A combined production of BBC Drama and BBC Comedy from the pen of David Renwick (One Foot in the Grave, The Two Ronnies and Jonathan Creek), Love Soup is a bittersweet look at single life and its bizarre twists. Series One: Gil Raymond and Alice Chenery would appear to be perfect soul mates. Gil is a successful American comedy writer who has fled his home country in search of artistic integrity and a lasting relationship. Alice is an account manager for a perfume company in a London department store, who is struggling to maintain a flat in Brighton she cannot afford. Week by week, Love Soup explores the separate lives of Gil and Alice: lives which, unhappily, never intersect, but parallel each other in many subtle ways. The series observes their hopes and fears as they try to remain sane in a world in which they feel increasingly excluded. Telling and poignant, each week brings their continuing doomed attempts to find the definitive partner who will bring them the happiness they deserve. Title Music: "Alley Boogie" performed by Georgia White. Broadcast History:
    Series One: Tuesdays at 21.00 on BBC One (Six 60-minute episodes)

    Shakespeare Retold is a dramatic four-part TV series developed by BBC One that focuses on a modern adaptation of four of William Shakespeare's beloved plays. David Nicholls's Much Ado About Nothing moves the romantic intrigue from Messina to a local news studio with the bickering couple of Beatrice (Sarah Parish) and Benedick (Damian Lewis) as its anchors and the lovely but gullible Hero (Billie Piper) tries to cope with her engagement to Claude (Tom Ellis) and the unwanted attentions of Don (Derek Riddell). Peter Moffat's Macbeth follows the jealousies and uprisings within the world of celebrity chefs as Joe Macbeth (James McAvoy), a sous chef, deals with his credit-taking boss Duncan Docherty (Vincent Regan), his power-hungry wife Ella (Keeley Hawes), and the righteous Peter Macduff (Richard Armitage). Sally Wainwright takes on The Taming of the Shrew to a political realm when an abrasive career politician, Katherine Minola (Shirley Henderson), is pushed to marry a penniless nobleman Petruchio (Rufus Sewell) because it would be good for her career. Lastly, in Peter Bowker's A Midsummer Night's Dream the whole world turns upside down when an engagement party turns disastrous for Hermia (Zoe Tapper) and James (William Ash) as her true love Xander (Rupert Evans) crashes the party while security guard Nick Bottom (Johnny Vegas) tries to finagle his way into the limelight.moreless
