Play episode

Welcome back to YOU HAVE BEEN WATCHING, a podcast about British sitcoms.

Join your hosts Tony Black & Robert Turnbull as they celebrate the 100th year centenary of the BBC by looking at the broad sweep of BBC sitcom.

Going back all the way to the late 1940s, we cover the sweep of key decades across the 20th century where BBC comedy helped shape the social fabric of a changing nation, from Alf Garnett’s counter-cultural railing in the 1960s, to Basil Fawlty’s latent imperial anxiety across the 70s, and into the lad/ladette culture of the 1990s, before looking at what the 21st century has offered so far. This and so much more!

In two weeks time, join Tony as he guests on the Shipwrecked & Comatose podcast with Matt Latham discussing the third season of THE BRITTAS EMPIRE…
