It is now available on DVD lasting around one hundred and fifty minutes and priced at £19.99.
Living out the Andy Warhol mantra that everyone will be famous for fifteen minutes the show’s format was simple.
Invite wannabe reality stars to say and play out the most off the wall and outrageous behaviour and put a camera in front of them.
Where life’s mishaps sometimes get recorded the “stars” of this show play out staged and sometimes rehearsed “incidents”.
The show was a hit and spawned many imitators.
Humorous in the broadest sense there is a manic feel to the proceedings which is exciting in a ‘lions eating the Christians’ sense.
My grown up kids love it so what do I know ?
No doubt it will put a Christmas smile on many faces.
“Bah humbug”….Where’s my copy of ‘It’s A Wonderful World’.
