    BBC (ended 2001)
    Victor Meldrew, a man who, put simply, is annoyed by every one of life's 'challenges' and when forced to take early retirement, he suddenly has plenty of time on his hands to rage against the petty annoyances of life and the people in it. Victor (Richard Wilson) has more than his fair share of complete and total idiots causing mayhem in his life and they always seem to culminate together to form one huge, disastrous conclusion that inevitably leaves Victor uttering his most famous catchphrase; "I don't believe it!" His long-suffering wife, Margaret (Annette Crosby), tries her best to cope with Victor’s rantings but, at the end of the day, she knows that deep down he has a heart of gold and wouldn’t want to have him any other way. Other regular characters are neighbours, Patrick Trench (Angus Deayton) and his wife Pippa (Janine Duvitski), who always seem to be on the wrong end of a misunderstanding with Victor, 'Family' friend Mrs Warboys (Doreen Mantle), who usually adds to Victor's despair, and Nick Swainey (Owen Brenman), a kind hearted eccentric fellow next door whose bizarre antics are the only thing that makes Victor speechless. • One Foot in the Grave was written and created by David Renwick and was produced and broadcast by the BBC. • The shows theme song was written, composed and sung by ex-python Eric Idle. • The show came 10th in the 'Britain's Best Sitcom' pole in 2004.moreless

    Comedian Alexander Armstrong hosts this Saturday night entertainment show, which showcases some of the weird and whacky talent members of the British public have. Their "talents" are judged by a panel which will put a secret cash value of up to £1000, making a total jackpot of £3000, to what they've done. The performer then has to guess how much they theoretically earned. If they over-estimate their worth, they walk away with nothing and exit through the "epic fail" door, if they estimate on or under their worth they get to keep their "epic win".moreless

The shows were structured so that Dee would kick-off proceedings, his guest performed the bulk of the show and then Dee returned, commenting wittily on text messages sent to his mobile phone by members of the audience (his phone number was displayed in the foyer). Guests in the second series were Lee Mack, Dara O'Briain, Rob Brydon (as Keith Barret), Rich Hall, Marcus Brigstocke & Julian Clary. Series 3: Jack Dee, who hosted the first two series' of Live At The Apollo, will host the first show, and during the series hosts will also include Jo Brand, Jimmy Carr (8 Out Of 10 Cats), Lee Mack (Not Going Out), Dara O'Briain (Mock the Week) and legendary US comedienne Joan Rivers.
