    BBC Two (ended 1982)
    Not The Nine O'Clock News was a satirical show broadcast on BBC2 (UK) from 1979 to 1982. Noted for its topical sketches and skits, it made stars of Rowan Atkinson, Mel Smith, Griff Rhys-Jones and Pamela Stephenson.

    The show required a large number of writers, and to this end operated an "open door" policy, accepting sketch ideas from anybody who wanted to contribute. With a large number of contributing writers, there was plenty of material to go round, and only the best ideas made it to the screen; thus the series was able to maintain a remarkably high quality of material across four series.

    The series ended in 1982, partly due to the various cast members wanting to pursue their own projects instead. The format was subsequently copied in the USA where it became Not Necessarily the News.

    For those wishing to see Not The Nine O'Clock News on video, two VHS compilations are available: Nice Video Shame About The Hedgehog and The Gorilla Kinda Lingers. Both are deleted but should be easy enough to find. Three albums were also released: Not The Nine O'Clock News, compiled from the soundtracks of series 1+2; Hedgehog Sandwich taken from series 3, and The Memory Kinda Lingers, taken from series 4. The latter two albums are available as a combined long-play BBC cassette.moreless

    The Big Read was a project that was orchestrated by BBC Two in order to determine what was England's best-loved novel. The show allowed viewers to cast their votes through the internet, vis text message or telephone. The intention of the show was to both raise public awareness of reading and to develop a list of the best and most popular novels. Initially, the British public was asked to vote for any novel that they wished, and then the voting was narrowed down to a list of 200 top books. Of this list of 200 books, the top 21 novels were put forward for more voting. Of the top 21 novels, only one book was allowed per author. The show was a great success in generating enthusiasm for literature and encouraging public participation. The Big Read ultimately compiled a list of the winning books that included some of the most entertaining and inspirational novels of all time.moreless

    Welcome to the Edge of Darkness guide at TV.com.

    Edge of Darkness was a landmark mini-series from the BBC. A classic suspense thriller set in contemporary Thatcherite Britain, the series captured accurately the paranoia of an age where Trident missiles shared headlines with anti-nuclear protestors.

    The programme bears all the hallmarks of a classic, from the quality writing and subtle acting to the score, which is by turns mournful and suspenseful. The drama made stars of Peck and Whalley, and was rated by the British Film Institute as the 15th all-time best British television programme.moreless
