Set in the Welsh Valleys, in a fictional town called Pen-Y-Ceffyl, Satellite City tells the story of an American who has ended up in Wales, the Price family; typically Welsh take him under their wing and show him the ropes. It's this situation that makes the series so successful, can you imagine Welsh people showing Americans how to live and act in Wales and then on the flip side, the American's then showing the Welsh how to live in their own town! Riotous indeed, and well worth 27 minutes of your time! Satellite City is to Wales what 'Father Ted' is to Ireland, what 'My Family' is to England. It is captures the very essences of Welsh humour and is the epitome of typical valley life. Much loved and cherished by many, it is possibly the most talked about and fondly remembered Welsh sitcoms ever. Satellite City has lasting comedy appeal and still to this day its humour has the ability to make people genuinely laugh, Welsh or not...
Satellite City was an award winning cult comedy show written by Boyd and Jane Clack, and was first shown in 1996 on BBC Wales.
It centres around the Price family which consists of Gwynne, his wife Moira, and his father Idris.
Their former lodger, English Stan has died, and Idris wants a replacement, but Gwynne isn't to keen on the idea until an american called Randy turns up on their doorstep and thats when the fun starts.
The humour is not rude or offensive like a lot of shows today and is also typically welsh, but you don't have to be welsh to understand or enjoy it - it could be compared to other regional comedies such as Father Ted in that respect.
The only annoying thing is that it has never been given the chance to appeal to a wider audience, like Father Ted and Rab C Nesbitt, but hopefully one day, this will be rectified.
