BritCom Q&A

AS TIME GOES BY

Is there a fanclub/web site for As Time Goes BY? I love the writing and acting in this show and miss it terribly.

The Web site (by a fan) at http://atgbcentral.com has tons of information--almost every article and photo of Judi Dench that is available plus much more. It would take days to read everything there. There is a search function, which helps one find information about the various actors, etc. It's the most thorough site that we've found that is still active and constantly updated.

GENERAL QUESTIONS

How about some Britcoms that would appeal to younger viewers? You have so many shows that cater to older folks. The only shows currently on the air that would amuse younger viewers are The Vicar Of Dibley and Red Dwarf. Please consider that young viewers make up a large portion of your viewing audience, and would appreciate some appropriate Britcoms (Brittas Empire, BlackAdder, Monty Python, or Mr. Bean, to name a few).

Thanks for your suggestions, which will be given to our Director of Programming. IPTV has aired BRITTAS EMPIRE, MONTY PYTHON'S FLYING CIRCUS and MR. BEAN, as well as others, in the past, but the broadcast rights have expired.

VICAR OF DIBLEY

Two of the "attendants" were dressed as Teletubbies at the wedding of Alice and Hugo.
