    White Teeth

    Channel 4 (ended 2002)
    Zadie Smith's anarchic comedy set in multiracial northwest London comes mind-blowingly to life in a four-part adaptation of her acclaimed first novel. Hailed as "street-smart and learned, sassy and philosophical" by the New York Times and "funny as hell" by Newsweek, Smith wrote White Teeth at the astonishing age of 24. Set in the cultural farrago of Willesden Green, where Smith grew up, White Teeth tells the story of three families in the hippy-to-hiphop era of 1974 to 1992 -- with a nostalgia-inducing soundtrack of popular hits from the period.

    "I wanted to write a book about a man who... lives a good life by accident," Smith says of White Teeth's protagonist, professional envelope-folder Archie Jones (played by Phil Davis), whom she compares to Jimmy Stewart. In British-music-hall fashion, she pairs Archie with a sidekick who is his opposite in nearly every way. Bengali waiter Samad Iqbal (Om Puri) is intellectual where Archie is clueless, a devout Muslim where Archie is a laid-back atheist, and a tormented adulterer where Archie is an oblivious family man. But they have been best friends since an experience involving a fugitive war criminal during World War II -- an incident that comes back to haunt Archie at crucial points in the plot. The story begins on New Year's Eve 1974, when Archie decides to end it all in a carbon monoxide-filled haze. Coincidentally, a nearby commune is celebrating the impending end of the world. Both Archie and the world survive to have some very unusual adventures.

    Smith populates White Teeth with an assortment of curious characters worthy of Dickens himself -- from Archie and Samad's headstrong spouses, lapsed Jehovah's Witness Clara (Naomie Harris) and tart-tongued Bengali Alsana (Archie Panjabi); to Clara's fire-and-brimstone mother, Hortense (Mona Hammond); Samad and Alsana's twin sons, brainy Magid and gang-leader Millat (both played by Christopher Simpson); and Archie and Clara's diffident daughter, Irie (Sarah Ozeke). Then there are the smugly scholarly Malfen family, the militant Keepers of the Eternal and Victorious Islamic Nation (an Islamic sect with an acronym problem), and a crazed animal liberation outfit called Fighting Animal Torture and Exploitation (FATE). All come together for a debacle at a pre-millennium bash for a genetically modified mouse. "White Teeth", the book by Zadie Smith, was commissioned by UK Network Channel 4 in the spring of 2002. Filming began in June of the same year and the first episode of four was aired on 17th September 2002. The show won praise from Film and TV critics and launched the career of one of it's stars Naomie Harris. The show gained healthy viewing figures throughout and peaked at 3.5 Million during the final episode. The Series has now been shown throughout the world and was aired in Australia, Sweden and most recently the USA to great success.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

    Welcome to the Supernanny (UK) guide at TV.com. This guide will cover the UK (original) airing and format of the programme. Following the success of the hit first series in the UK and a resulting series in America, Supernanny is back! No-nonsense nanny Jo Frost returns with her magic for series two, with four new episodes to be followed by eight more later in the year, putting modern families, parenting and childcare back under the microscope. Each week, Supernanny promises to transform the lives of a different family and put a stop to the unruly bad behaviour of children who are driving their parents insane. Having tackled tantrum-prone toddlers in series one, this time Jo takes on a range of problem children from terror tweens to troublesome teenagers, and from destructive daughters to children who won't eat, sleep or go to school. In her frank and upfront style, Jo forces each family to confront the real issues behind the bad behaviour. Then, with her recipe of strict discipline and tried-and-tested techniques, she sets about teaching the parents how to turn their kids around; but can she meet these tough new challenges with each family in just three weeks?moreless
