Radio Active
BBC Radio 4's spoof local radio station (55 30min episodes)

BBC Radio 4's spoof local radio station, broadcast in 55 episodes from 1979, written by and starring Angus Deayton and Geoffrey Perkins, with Michael Fenton Stevens, Helen Atkinson-Wood and Philip Pope. A wickedly accurate send-up of radio with egotistic DJs presenting pop music parodies such as The Hee Bee Gees and struggling to keep a lid on the shambles of technical cock-ups, incomprehensible interviewees and sarcastic colleagues. In 1989 it morphed into TV series KYTV. [S07E03 God Alone Knows includes censored material plus material added to censored version.]
