  1. Gah, why don’t they just leave stuff like that to the comedians? Presenters/newsreaders trying to be funny just end up looking like pillocks.

    The Jeeves and Wooster bit, however, was very, very funny. I remember that from when I was a kid, actually. “And now you’ve gone and thrown it all away!”

    Oh, I don’t know. I like it. But then, I really enjoyed the Bond stuff from this year’s Children In Need, and have an unhealthy interest in BBC newsreaders…

    I still want to punch Anne Robinson in the face, though.

  3. God I remember that! I liked it back then but ain’t seen it for years.

  4. Hmm, there could’ve been a bit more Dwarf in there. It seemed like they were just mouthing, rather than singing like the rest of the acts. And there were too many close-ups of Craig.

    This is addressed in… something. The Programme Guide? Basically, nobody told them they were supposed to be actually singing along, and they assumed they were supposed to mime.

  6. Yeah, it’s also the reason why Kryten’s nose looks a bit odd. The tip of it had been pulled off by Craig.

  7. Anne Diamond, Anne Robinson and that ‘bloody’ Ester Ranson women, I’d be hard pushed to know which one to punch first……

    I can never hate Anne Diamond. Not after her wonderful performance in Filthy, Rich & Catflap.

  9. The Jeeves and Wooster bit was totally brilliant!

  10. Indeed…..
    I have to say Jeeves and Wooster largely passed me by when first broadcast, but I’ve
    caught a few on Saturday mornings recently, the wifes taken to watching them in bed.
    I was actually late for work one Saturday as I had to watch the end.
    They really are great entertainment.

  11. How come this was excluded from the Red Dwarf DVDs?

    Right.

    Queen – expensive. Comic relief clips – also expensive (but all goes to charidee). Clips of loads of famous people – even more expensive.

    We did consider a ‘play your own CD to our cast’s miming…now’ option – as seen on the special edition of Almost Famous – along with JUST our cast’s footage. But it’s CR’s tape, we don’t have it, and we couldn’t even afford that.

  13. Yeah the last option was what I was expecting to happen but I didn’t realise it wasn’t in the GNP vaults. Also, I suspect there’s a loophole to be exploited regarding commentary tracks. Taking the newest Wallace & Gromit’s 3 Cracking Adventures DVD as my only example of this: the normal soundtrack has just the new, altered soundtrack, complete with annoyingly changed birthday card and penguin organ music; the commentary soundtrack features Nick Park and Steve Box speaking over the ORIGINAL version of the film, with the original soundtrack.

    Just a thought…

  14. the normal soundtrack*

    * to The Wrong Trousers, this is.

    Oh, this makes me so, so sad. I would love to see the full footage.

    So… Comic Relief own the rights, the rights are extremely expensive, Comic Relief is a charity, they make money by fundraising from members of the public… could we have a whip-round?
