Legal, Decent, Honest and Truthful: The Complete Series 1-3: A BBC Radio full-cast comedy drama

Martin Jarvis stars in this BBC radio satire set in the competitive world of advertising Happiness... is a career in advertising. Or is it? Activist turned ad writer Ken Handley isn't so sure. Back in the day, he used to hitch-hike and attend peace protests. Now, he finds himself writing copy for the Conservative Party and extolling the virtues of products he hates - while also coping with a drunken boss, strait-laced colleagues and an overactive mind. Over three series, we follow his exploits and moral dilemmas as he grapples with the challenges of winning accounts, presenting to clients and dealing with the women in his life. A pitch for a motorway services chain drives him round the bend, a seven-foot squirrel nearly sends him nuts, and he faces his own emergency when he's coerced into a Samaritans campaign. On the domestic front, Ken's got a divorce and a new home to contend with - but things start looking up when leggy model April comes on the scene... Written by Guy Jenkin (Drop the Dead Donkey) and Jon Canter (Posh Nosh), this sardonic advertising sitcom stars Martin Jarvis as Ken, with a cast including Imelda Staunton, Lesley Manville, Joss Ackland and Miriam Margolyes.

Not The Nine O'Clock News

Songs and sketches from the groundbreaking BBC comedy series show starring Rowan Atkinson, Griff Rhys Jones, Mel Smith and Pamela Stephenson. 'Not the Nine O’Clock News' is regarded as one of the great classics of British television humour. Written by some of Britain’s finest comedy writers, including Richard Curtis, Andy Hamilton and Guy Jenkin, the show was innovative, shocking and rude – and extremely funny. Published on CD for the first time, this hilarious compilation includes some of the very best sketches and songs, including ‘(I Like) Trucking’, ‘England My Leotard’, ‘Nice Video (Shame about the Song)’, the ‘Two Ninnies’ song and of course ‘(The Memory) Kinda Lingers’. With its irreverent and outrageous look at everything from TV programmes such as 'Game for a Laugh', 'Question Time' and 'The Two Ronnies' to the Royal Family, pop stars and squashed hedgehogs, this release will appeal to all those who fondly remember the original series, and to anyone else who simply wants to sample some of the sharpest, wittiest comedy around.
