Show Summary

Still Game is a comedy based around the lives of pensioner pals Jack Jarvis and Victor McDade. It's set in and around a fictional part of Glasgow called Craiglang, and Jack and Victor's home in Osprey Heights. Focusing on the ironies and comedy of old age with humour, tenderness and pathos, these OAPS prove they're still game for anything the world can throw at them. The show enjoyes the highest viewing figures that any Scottish programme has seen in the last ten years. The third series first episode alone drew 1,520,100 viewers - 47% of Scotland's total viewing audience. This makes it the most watched BBC comedy in Scotland ever, outperforming even its parent show, Chewin' the Fat. After negotations with BBC London, Still Game will finally receive the UK-wide slot it deserves, as of series 4. (Previously, fans from south of the border have only been able to watch the series through Sky digital channel 941 or on DVD/VHS.)
