    How come no bugger mentioned this, then?

    Not a bad little segment, IMO. Were those interviews new, or do I just not recognise them? So much for being “snubbed”. RD came off better than, say, the thirty seconds of disconnected nonsense-clips that Reeves and Mortimer got.

    Certainly dismisses any prejudice against the show!

    I wonder why Doug was not in it?

    Really surprised to see Rob!

    I have a feeling that programme was made 10 years ago for the 40th anniversary. You can tell from Chris and Robert’s respective hairlines. ;)

    Not to sound as though I believe the “RD is being snubbed” thing – it seems pretty obvious that that was a misunderstanding.

    You’ve got to love them cutting from Rob talking about the ratings and reviews of series 1 to clips from VII…xD

    Yes, Jeremy Clarkson and Ian Hislop looked much younger too.

    Oh, and the fact that Anthony Minghella was alive was another clue…

    Ah, now. The end of the programme gave the date MMXIV, but yeah, everyone did look suspiciously young. So presumably it’s been infinitesimally revamped from the 40th anniversary programme. Sneaky buggers.

    The interviews with Rob, Robert and Chris looked really familiar to me. I remember having watched them before – I know I definitely heard Rob’s stalker story before. So yeah, I assumed these were recorded for the 40th anniversary programme.

    I’m sure someone transcibed it on a blog – maybe even here? – when it was originally on the 40th anniversary?

    Here we are. Ten years ago, some stupid cunt (ahem) transcribed the Red Dwarf Bit from BBC2’s 40th Anniversary celebrations, and submitted it to some other cunts on a website.

    Oh, nice work.

    Pssh, and I don’t even have the excuse that I was too young to remember it the first time.

    1.16 ish point in this two hour show. New interview moment, and dwarf clips back on bbc2

    Chris Barrie appears, to transition from Hitchhikers into Dwarf’s 1 minute of coverage in 50 years of bbc two comedy. He doesn’t do a bad job, though he mentions nerds a bit, he says the show is special because of the blend of sci fi and comedy. They didn’t choose the lightbulb or the boxer shorts, amongst visual clips they went with the “badly needed a pen” joke.

    They use the TV screen from Kryten episode, to good effect, in a trope the whole documentary uses, finding tv screen on screen in the shows in order to move back to bbc 2 logo.

    Though, for this Caption… 1998 – 1999 Fuck off BBC2.

    I liked it when they said smeg.

    Nice of Alan Alda to do that whole “people need a laugh track to know where the jokes are” thang when speaking of Americans.

    Shame Mathew Baynton and Prunella Scales only got one or two sentences.
