    Channel 4 (ended 2004)
    Teachers was a highly successful Channel 4 comedy, which followed a group of immature teachers working at Summerdown School, in Bristol. The theme song for the show was "The Boy With The Arab Strap" by Belle and Sebastian. Teachers first series began in 2001 and in 2003 became the only Channel 4 series ever to have a third series. In 2004 it broke its own record with a fourth series airing. Unfortunately, in January 2005 after three successful series and a fourth series which viewers felt let them down, Channel 4 producers announced that Teachers had run its course and would not be returning for a fifth series. The show originally starred Andrew Lincoln (Simon Casey), Adrian Bower (Brian Steadman), Navin Chowdhry (Kurt McKenna), Raquel Cassidy (Susan Gately) and Nina Sosanya (Jenny Paige). The original cast were joined by Tamzin Malleson (Penny Neville), James Lance (Matt Harvey) and Shaun Evans (John Paul 'J.P.' Keating), in series two. At the end of this series Simon, Susan, Jenny and J.P. were all wrote out. In series three Vicky Hall joined the cast as Lindsay Pearce and Andrew Lincoln briefly returned to the role of Simon Casey. In series four, the remaining characters from the first series of the show, Brian and Kurt, left, alongside Matt. Whilst three new cast members joined in the form of Lee Williams (Ewan Doherty), Daon Broni (Damien Waller) and Mathew Horne (Ben Birkett). The supporting cast featured Lloyd McGuire (Bob Porter), Ellen Thomas (Liz Webb), Gillian Bevan (Clare Hunter), Ursula Holden-Gill (Carol Schicklgruber), Zoe Telford (Maggie), Jonas Armstrong (Antony Millington), Jason Boyd (Grint), Liz White (Eileen), Damien Goodwin (Alec), Suthas Bhoopongsa (Ping), Kara Tointon (Pauline Young), Phoebe Thomas (Cheryl Cassidy) and James Corden (Jeremy Stevens).moreless

    Channel 4 (ended 2004)
    As If was a ground-breaking British drama, following the exciting lives of six young adults living in London. The drama's success is partly because of the fantastic soundtrack and modern style of filming; flashbacks, dodgy camerawork and sureal sequences are extremely frequent in all of the individual 30-minute long episodes. Jamie, Sooz, Nicki, Alex, Sasha, and Rob are the six teenagers featured in this hit teen drama. Each episode of As If shows the story from the character's point of view, allowing the viewers to learn their thoughts and personal feelings on the drama unfolding around them. Season One: Jamie had a crush on Nicki, Sooz had a crush on Rob. Jamie moved on by getting involved with an older women off the Internet. Sasha and Rob faced problems in their complex relationship, while Alex dated policeman Dan, but lied about his age. Nicki learnt lessons in love and life, and at the end of the series, Jamie and Sooz kissed. In Season Two, Nicki and Sasha came to blows over the same guy, Riggs, and Sasha ended up cheating on Rob with him. Alex found new love with bi-sexual Mark, and Jamie and Sooz struggled with revealing their relationship to the group, and accepting their feelings. Season Three saw Sooz and Jamie on the rocks after he slept with Nicki, and she struggled with life, resulting in a suicide attempt. Alex messed things up with Mark, when he ended up back with Dan. Mark found new love, in the shape of Nicki, then cheated on her. In Season Four the six friends considered to tackle their way through life. Sooz and Jamie's on/off relationship hit a rock when Sooz cheated, Nicki continued to be her usual self, Alex meanwhile had more boy problems - mainly with young Allen. Sasha struggled with her carrer, while Rob got engaged, before finding true love, a little closer to home...moreless

    Channel 4 (ended 2005)
    Nathan Barley, is a show that gives us a peep into the life of professional bighead, Nathan Barley. He runs a website called 'Trashbat' ( there is a real site @ www.trashbat.co.ck however, although it does relate to Nathan Barley it is not the one shown in the series) Nathan goes around giving out sticker and shouting at everyone, "come visit my website. it's at trashbat dot cock" The pun being that the 'co.ck' URL ending, is the international code for the cook islands, in the same way that 'co.uk' is the same for the UK. Barley, who lives and works in the fictional London area of Hosegate, works as a web master, (although all the web work is authored and coded by 'Pingu', whom he treats as a virtual slave, as poor Pingu is far too shy and reticent to stick up for himself) Barley also sees himself as a "guerrilla film maker", but his favorite description of himself is as a "self-facilitating media node". The nemesis of Nathan Barley is article writer, Dan Ashcroft. Whose latest piece entitled "The rise of the idiots" has been a huge success with everyone. ESPECIALLY the idiots themselves. As they of course don't see themselves that way. Dans office at the magazine 'Sugar Ape' is full of idiots, so they naturally continue to glide around the office on their tiny metal scooters and drool over the article, telling Dan how great it is, all the while blissfully unaware that it was based on them. Dan and Nathan soon meet up, in a shop and before he knows it Dan has been somehow cajoled into doing an advert for 'trashbat dot cock', which barley films on the spot with his mobile phone. Nathan has of course the newest and coolest phone in the world, the 'Wasp T12 speechtool', with the huge number five on the face, "as thats the number people use most" The T12 splits into two parts to become a pair of mini decks, so you can do a mix on the bus stop or wherever the muse takes you. Other protagonists in this biting satire include, Clair Ashcroft (Dans sister) who Nathan fancies and as ever tries to heel in on her idea for a video featuring a choir of reformed junkies. A guy just called 'Jones', who shares a flat with Clair and Dan Ashcroft. He is a supposed DJ and a musician of monumentally bad compositions, that keep Clair awake all night. Then there is the previously mentioned Pingu, a computer genius who can code anything in a night, but Nathan always steals at least half the credit, if he had the tinniest bit of input. Lastly we have the editor of sugar ape magazine, Jonatton Yeah?, who apparently has the '?' at the end of his name added by deed poll to make it legal. He is, unfortunately for Dan Ashcroft, not one of the idiots, although he sometimes pretends to be. He cannot be fooled like the rest of the office, and he has a firmer hold on Dan that Dan likes.moreless

    Welcome to the Smack The Pony guide at TV.com.

    Take the banal, the irrelevant and the downright silly, add a female perspective, pour in a hefty dose of comic timing, stir well, and what do you get? Smack the Pony. The team of Sally Phillips, Doon MacKichan and Fiona Allen play on women's neuroses (snogging, pubic hair and size of boobs, not necessarily in that order), their preoccupations (finding a man, finding a man and finding a man), their weaknesses (Marks & Spencer, fashion and men) and their competitiveness (more covert than that of the male of the species, and therefore far more deadly).

    The spoof dating agency clips take in the full range of stereotypes and unfailingly hit the spot. And the prize for the most surreal sketch goes to the one which sets that most bourgeois of institutions--the wedding list--in a sex shop, with the coup de grace: "Two butt plugs ... with love from Kathy and Edward".moreless

    Chelmsford 123 was a situation comedy produced for British Channel 4 television by Hat Trick Productions. It ran for two seasons, of six and seven episodes, in 1988 and 1990. The series was located in the British town of Chelmsford in 123 AD and concerned the comic power struggle between Roman governor Aulus Paulinus (Jimmy Mulville) and the British chieftain, Badvoc (Rory McGrath). Britain is cold and wet, and Aulus was given the Governor's job as a suitable punishment for accidentally insulting the Holy Roman Emperors' girlfriend. Aulus was a rather delicate Roman, who was usually outwitted by the scheming Badvoc, who hadn't had a haircut for twenty-five years. It was the first series from Hat Trick Productions who were set to become the most successful independent company making comedy and comedy-quiz-shows for British TV in the 1990s.moreless

    An insane, comedy quiz show played for fun without concern for the winner.

    The show featured Gregory Proops as the high commander with Bill Bailey and Craig Charles as his two captains. The space-age game show was set in a futuristic ship and was monitored by the super computer "Hal" (as Greg calls him). Each captain would have two guests on his team for every episode and they would try to prove who knew more sci-fi facts through a variety of ways including trivia, guessing what props were used in which movies, etc. The show ran for ten weeks and was a great opportunity for Greg to show off his game show host skills.moreless

    Channel 4 (ended 1997)
    Ant and Dec Unzipped aired on channel 4 in the United Kingdom. It featured Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly in a variety of different sketches each week.

    The concentration was heavily on comedy, with the pranks and game-shows elements of the earlier programs the pair hosted dropped. The slightly later airtime, and perhaps the fact that one can take greater liberties on the less closely scrutinised C4, permitted the duo further opportunities to stray into areas of dubious taste, but their laddish charm - especially appealing to their core juvenile audience - meant that the material caused less offence than before. Sharp, and full of confidence, the pair played heavily on their Geordie backgrounds in their sketches and routines, and a basic ongoing storyline allowed the duo to segue into sketches and introduce different characters, including Tony Blunt, who always spoke his mind, and Mr Swaps, who seemed to collect everything.moreless
