I'm an American living abroad in China. I found this show and I loveit. I love the Mocumentary style. The Voice over ads that perfect touchof seriousness to a wacky way out show. The production level is verygood and the two "main" actors are very talented. I may not get all thejokes since it is geared towards the UK audience but this is OK. TheStereotypes are crude and offensive at times, but this is all playedout to be just over the top and not taken serious. The two male leadsplay so many parts. Both male and female. At times it is so funny tosee a hulking man play a women. It pays homage to Monty Python. I oftenwonder how they gained acces...

Little Britain is a British character-based comedy sketch show which was first broadcast on BBC radio and then turned into a television show. It was written by stars Matt Lucas and David Walliams. Its title is an amalgamation of the terms 'Little England' and 'Great Britain', and is also the name of a Victorian neighbourhood and modern street in London.
The show comprises sketches involving exaggerated parodies of British people from all walks of life in various situations familiar to the British. These sketches are presented to the viewer together with narration in a manner which suggests that the programme is a guide aimed at non-British people to the ways of life of various classes of British society. Despite the narrator's description of great British institutions, the comedy is derived from the British audience's self-deprecating understanding of either themselves or people known to them.
A third series began on 17 November 2005 on BBC One, and ended six weeks later. After its transmission, it was unclear whether there would be another, as many sketches were given dramatic twists and "wrapped up" (see individual character articles). Lucas and Walliams were reportedly in talks for a fourth series with the BBC. Furthermore, they admitted in an interview they preferred to "kill off" certain characters in order to make way for new ones.

Fact-based story about the drug-addled and sordid life of The Rolling Stones founder Brian Jones.

Mixed into the destruction of Jones is a common builder, Frank Thorogood, who is given the unenviable task of trying to please Jones by rebuilding his estate and to watch him per ...
