    Stuart Jones (Aidan Gillen) has got it all. He's rich, drop-dead gorgeous and always the centre of attention. He can be forgiven the arrogance because he's pretty close to perfection. His best mate Vince Tyler (Craig Kelly) is funny, adorable and definitely a babe but, unlike his friend, has zero confidence in himself. Since time began, Vince has carried a torch for Stuart but his love remains firmly unrequited. They're both 29, hitting Canal Street every night, stalwarts of the scene but just starting to wonder where else their lives may be going. Then along comes Nathan Maloney (Charlie Hunnam). Young, wild and coming out with a vengeance, he crowbars his way into their world and once he arrives, nothing is ever the same again.moreless

    Channel 4
    Essentially, a take on The Odd Couple, Peep Show revolves around the lives of Mark Corrigan and Jeremy Osbourne; two twenty-somethings who share a flat. Mark works in an office and has a bleak outlook on life; he's infatuated with his colleague, Sophie Chapman. Jeremy, in contrast, is a lazy, shallow man trying to make it in the music industry. A unique twist that immediately sets the show apart form other sitcoms is the use of the first person view point [the original show title was POV], where we get to see from the characters own eyes. We also get to hear internal thoughts and opinions which reveals things they wouldn't say out loud.moreless

    Channel 4 (ended 1998)
    The funniest improvisational show to hit UK (and later on US) screens. The show features four contestants playing games, with suggestions sometimes taken from the studio audience. The games include: Scenes From a Hat, Party Quirks, Hoedown, and Let's Make A Date. Whose Line is it Anyway? began as a radio show on BBC Radio 4 in 1987. It was moved to television a year later in 1988. Both shows were hosted by Clive Anderson. During the first season, the show featured one regular contestant (John Sessions) and three guest contestants. From the second season onward, the contestants rotated from episode to episode and have included Ryan Stiles, Colin Mochrie, Greg Proops, Tony Slattery, Josie Lawrence, and Brad Sherwood, just to name a few. In 1998, episodes of the show were filmed in Hollywood to celebrate the show's 10th anniversary. Episodes of the show were also filmed in New York in 1991 and 1992. Beginning in 1998, a US version of the show was made for the ABC Television Network. The original ran on Comedy Central for many years. On April 3, 2006, Whose Line returned to American television on BBC America. Whose Line is It Anyway? currently airs on BBC America in the US. It also airs on The Comedy Channel in Australia. Here is a list of some of the people who appeared on the radio show but never made it on the TV show: Lenny Henry Dawn French Nonny Williams Hugh Laurie Kate Robbins Colin Sell (music)moreless

    Welcome to the Ultraviolet guide at TV.com. Ultraviolet charted the exploits of an investigative government unit, armed with the latest weaponry, whose aim is to track down and exterminate Code 5 infected subjects while attempting to work out their agenda. A policeman, Michael Colefield, is reluctantly drawn into the group after a confrontation with his 'turned' former best friend, Jack Beresford, when Michael, defending himself after being bitten, is forced to 'kill' Jack. Stylish, dark and often humourous, Ultraviolet delivered a blend of vampire myth with a modern slant. It is notable that the programme never once mentions the word vampire, instead referring to the antagonists as 'leeches' or a 'code 5 infection'. A pilot for a potential US series was made, a composite of all that was good in the 6 episodes of the British version, but no series was commissioned.moreless

    Channel 4 (ended 2005)
    Jamie Oliver has set himself the challenge of a lifetime—to take charge of 20,000 school lunches a day across one of London's most demanding areas as he campaigns to ban junk foods in schools and stop students from eating a quarter of a ton of French fries a week. If he succeeds in transforming the way kids eat, Jamie will use this experience to create a blueprint for school meals across the country.

    Jamie's School Dinners finds Oliver taking on the school meals service of a Council-run secondary school in Greenwich, a London borough, as well as spending a month working with primary kids in a severely deprived part of Durham. After finding out what young people are eating for lunch, how it's prepared, and how on earth you cook for hundreds of kids at a time, Oliver works with the students and catering staff to steer students away from processed, pre-prepared meals towards healthier and more exciting choices such as wraps, Thai curries and fish pies. Jamie prepares the new meals from scratch daily with fiery school dinner lady, Nora.moreless

    Who says good reading is good for you? American Claire has just moved to Glasgow and is extremely keen to meet some new and interesting people. She decides to start a book group. To her utter dismay, those who turn up for the first session are not the friends she had hoped for. There's Kenny, a handsome ex-climber in a wheelchair, Janice the frustrated wife of a famous Scottish footballer, and eccentric student Barney who Claire actually does fancy. The Book Group is about this intriguing cast of characters, who are all trying to make new friends, new lives and new versions of themselves. But pretty soon things get complicated. A little education can be a dangerous thing. Bad News! Channel 4 did confirm a third series was in the works due for broadcast mid 2004, However, I received an email from Annie Griffin (Creator of the show) explaining that no third series was in production for 2004, nor had she even yet written a third series due to commitments towards other projects, "...but perhaps some time in the future they'll be back" Currently I shall leave the status of the show as on hiatus, for it may return.moreless

    Welcome to The Secret Life of Machines guide at TV.com.

    Tim Hunkin explains how the machines we use every day actually work, using a fascinating combination of experiments, analogies, animation, and larger-than-lifesize working models.

    The TV series was the outgrowth of a series of cartoons for the Observer newspaper called "The Rudiments of Wisdom", which Tim researched and drew for 14 years.

    Series 3 was also known as The Secret Life of Office Machines because an office theme ran through the episodes.

    The theme music is a version of Dave Brubeck's "Take Five" by Val Bennett, retitled "The Russians are Coming".moreless

    The Big Breakfast was a live magazine show, which aired on Channel 4. Since it's first show, it provided many of today's TV's stars with their big break; Chris Evans, Gaby Roslyn, and Johnny Vaughan all found greater fame since hosting the show. The show's greatest novelty was it's setting; a former terrace of 3 cottages in East London, once lived in by the lock keepers of the Old Ford Lock on the Lees Navigation Canal. The show was presented from the living room, with interviews by the fireplace, round the kitchen table, and on the bed in the boudoire. They even presented from a shed at the bottom of the garden. The show was set apart from others by it's wacky and colourful presentation, and was nominated for, and even won, along with it's presenters, several awards. The show was then axed by Channel 4 at the height of its popularity with the fans.moreless
