Fawlty Memory: Help me find a TV show.
February 9, 2010 11:39 PM   Subscribe

Looking for the name of a British television documentary series dealing with the social history of Britain as seen through its television comedies. Screened in 2009.

I remember watching it on demand. One episode dealt with race relations. Showing clips from 'Mind your Language' and many other shows through TV history. The name of the show was not very distinctive so I'm having a lot of trouble trying to track it down. Really enjoyed it and want to recommend it to some other people.

Was it Lenny's Britain? Shown in 2007 I think but might be what you had in mind.

No unfortunately it wasn't that. It had no presenter just a lot of talking heads, archive and narration.

Dawn French's Boys Who Do Comedy, More Boys Who Do Comedy, and Girls Who Do Comedy.

No my bad for not reading the question properly. I know the one you mean. I'll have another look.
