    BBC Two (ended 2008)
    Postman Pat was based on a series of books by John Cunliffe, the program is about a rural postman who helps his friends in the village of Greendale, based supposedly in Cumbria, England. The first series of thirteen 15-minute episodes was produced by Woodland Animations and broadcast by the BBC in 1981. Ivor Wood, a vetaran of animations like The Magic Roundabout, was at the helm as producer. Ken Barrie sang the well known theme tune and provided the narration. The stories were very successful and have seen endless repeats over the years. To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the show in 1991, the old production crew was reunited for two one-off 25 minute specials, again shown by the BBC. Two more came in 1995, and these were followed by a second full series of 13 adventures. Then, after almost 10 years of absence from our screens, Postman Pat returned in 2004 for his third series. This consisted of 25 new episodes and several specials. The model animation was a far cry from the simple look of the early 80's, with brighter sets, much smoother puppet movements and characters voices lip-synched. Ken Barrie is still the voice of our favorite postman, but he is also joined by a cast of other talented voice artists, like Carole Boyd. For the final season in 2008, the series was titled Postman Pat: Special Delivery Service. The show aired on BBC2 from 1981-2002, CBBC from 1986-2002 and at CBeebies from 2003-2008. Reruns continue today on CBeebies.moreless

    Gus, Beres, Linvall and Johnny are the closest of friends – the sort of friends who share a beer and provide moral support when the going gets tough Their varying fortunes are captured in this enthralling and funny drama that proves the old adage: “A friend in need is a friend indeed”. Described as a “black, male, UK version of Sex In The City”, this highly original, contemporary BBC drama is a male perspective on modern relationships starring some of Britain’s top black actors. Set in Brixton, London, Gus, Beres, Linvall and Johnny meet regularly for football practice, putting the world to rights over a pint of beer, sharing the most intimate details of their often stormy relationships, and offering each other support in times of crisis. Gus, currently reaping the benefits of the successful family jewellery business, is in good spirits. He’s young, single and relatively wealthy, although his parents’ imminent visit from Jamaica is making him feel a little bit apprehensive. What does he have to fear? Johnny is caught between Lesley, his live-in girlfriend, and Pauline, a more recent affair. With both women due to give birth to his baby, it can't be long before his cheating ways are exposed. Beres, married to the beautiful Sonia, is content with what he has: a steady job at the garage, a wonderful daughter, Lara, and a seemingly happy marriage. His wife however prefers to seek companionship from her ‘friend’ Grace. How will he cope when Sonia leaves him? Linvall, an aspiring fashion photographer, is tiring of his mediocre job at a High Street studio. Linvall wants to be a creative artist. When he becomes sexually involved with his new business partner, Lucy, the sparks begin to fly. Not least because she is the daughter of Edwin Fry, perennial grandfather of rock music.

    "Trust, encouragement, reward, loyalty... satisfaction. That's what I'm..you know. Trust people and they'll be true to you. Treat them greatly, and they will show themselves to be great." - David Brent.

    The Office tells a story of a few people working in a British office working hard to not lose their jobs. This hilarious comedy won a Golden Globe award for best comedy series. It was created by Ricky Gervais and Steve Merchant.

    David Brent (Ricky Gervais) is a manager of low intelligence and has no sense of humor, but is convinced that he is the best, the most entertaining and the most well liked boss of all time.

    Today the show has been sold in more than 60 countries and it even had a remake in America. The Office is the first non-American show nominated in the category of best television musical or comedy for a Golden Globe Award; and Ricky Gervais was the first non-American actor nominated for the lead role in a television comedy for the same award. The Office won both awards and left Sex and the City & Matt LeBlanc empty handed.

    When the series aired the first season, they did not even know how popular it would get in some future episodes. The fact that its release on the DVD format proved to be the BBC's best selling comedy release shows its mass popularity and appeal.

    The writers at the start did not imagine that a second season would be created and after bowing to pressure to create one they would not do it again for a third. The show ended on a high note after two Christmas specials which tied up knots and rounded off wonderfully the first two seasons.

    Opening Theme Song: "Handbags and Gladrags" performed by Fin.

    WARNING: some episodes contain quotes with strong language.moreless

    Unsympathetic to the precious pomposity of the rock and pop industry, 'Buzzcocks' takes a sledgehammer to the delicate egos of the biggest and most famous names in music - often whilst they are guests on the programme. The scathing wit of Mark Lamarr and later Simon Amstell, has literally caused guests to walk off the show. From 2009 to 2013, the show was presented by different guest hosts each week. In July 2014 it was announced that Rhod Gilbert would become the show's third regular host from the 28th series onwards. In 2013, the BBC aired a series called What a Load of Buzzcocks which is narrated by Blur's Alex James and looks at the best bits of a certain year of music including moments from 'Buzzcocks'.moreless

Mr Benn ran for thirteen episodes in the early 70s and there was a special episode in 2005.

    BBC Two
    The Money Programme is a finance and business affairs television programme on BBC2. First broadcast in 5 April 1966, The Money Programme is the BBC's longest running business affairs programme. In the early years the Money Programme was fronted by "commentators" - distinguished financial journalists who gave viewers an insight and an understanding into Britain's new economic reality. The programme was not an immediate success. Audiences started at around half a million. But the programme had soon established itself and was making headlines - like the edition in November 1977 when Sir James Goldsmith accused the programme of telling lies and promptly stormed off the set. The Programme was completely transformed in the 1980’s into a new glossy magazine format. Introduced with two new presenters, Valerie Singleton and Brian Widlake, who helped to bring the programme to a wider audience. In 2001 the Programme was given a new look, changing from a magazine to a single subject documentary, such as 50 Cent’s business acumen, PPI’s and The World According To Google. The new format, produced in association with The Open University, has proved a great success with increased audiences, even greater press attention and a clutch of awards for its programmes.moreless
