Welcome back to YOU HAVE BEEN WATCHING, a podcast about British sitcoms.
Join your hosts Tony Black & Robert Turnbull as they discuss Ricky Gervais & Stephen Merchant’s mockumentary sitcom THE OFFICE, from 2001-2003.
A transatlantic sensation that spawned a legion of similar comedies in both the UK & US, how did The Office change comedy? Does it remain as groundbreaking as it was and it is still as powerful a commentary on the workplace as it was? We unpick it and find out.
