Harry produced his own series 'Harry Enfield and chums' then later the group made The Fast Show a reality. The Fast Show injected a new lease of life into sketch shows. If you look at pre-Fast Show sketches you will see they move much slower but the premise for the Fast Show was, get them on, say something funny, get them off.moreless

    Welcome to the Poldark guide at TV.com. This old British show from the 1970s is a period piece based on Winston Graham's historical novels of 18th century Cornwall. Our hero is an unusual English gentleman called Captain Ross Poldark, who comes home from the War of American Independence to find his sweetheart Elizabeth about to marry his cousin Francis Poldark. Ross sinks into a deep depression. Short of money, he tries mining and other enterprises to make his fortune, nearly always having to fight the upstart George Warleggan - an old enemy who also has designs on Elizabeth. But the big love story of the series is unexpected. While Ross is pining for Elizabeth, he rescues an urchin called Demelza from her dreadful family, and she falls in love with him. Ross only slowly comes to see Demelza as a possible mate. The drama is all played out amid the dramatic scenery of the Cornish coast-line, where smugglers, ship-wreckers, tin-miners and swindlers of various kinds ply their trades. All twenty-nine episodes are now available on DVD.moreless

    Linda La Hughes (Kathy Burke) shares a flat with Tom Farrell (James Dreyfus). Linda is overweight, loudmouthed and not particularly attractive. She thinks she's gorgeous and irrestible, however. She's also sex mad and obsessed with men.

    Tom is an aspiring actor. He's got an agent, but finds it difficult to get parts. He doesn't like Linda much, in spite of (or perhaps because of) the fact that they share a flat.

    She isn't completely comfortable with his homosexuality, perhaps because she finds it difficult to live with a man who doesn't find her sexually attractive.moreless

    The Mysti Show was first aired in April 2004 in a bid to win viewers onto the BBC. It was a very girly orientated show and was aimed at teenagers but the presenting style and the storyline was a bit childish. Girls around the age of 6/7 watched Mysti, and a new role model was born. Unfortunately, the show was then cancelled in September 2004, and everyone thought that was the end for everyones favourite fairy. That is, until a new series of Mysti was introduced in December 2005. The show, now forgetting it's magazine past, concerntrated on how Mysti copes once she is stripped of her powers.

    Mysti was cancelled mid-series in 2005.moreless
