With my mates Judge and Bob I made a cheap DV pilot for this show which was inspired by Calendar, Look North and other local strands like Edit V. Like many in the region, we’d also seen Tom Adams in the DFS ads (Did you know he was actually considered for the part of Bond in the 60s?) and thought that we couldn’t find a better and funnier anchorman.

The completed pilot was randomly dispatched to Stevan Keane, who ran the 4Later strand at Channel 4, and he commissioned it, directly from us!

Even though the true horror of running a production company later became apparent we actually delivered the shows. Some people even thought they were funny.

Classic storylines included Feral Animal Logistics at the Business Enterprise Awards, a county forbidden from using the toilet and the Dole Office Christmas Party.
