On the outskirts of Manchesterford, a small antiques shop is a hotbed of scandal and gossip. This spoof soap opera, compete with unrealistic sets and sensationalist dialogue, originally appeared as a series of sketches on Victoria Wood's television show 'As Seen on TV', with absurd storylines that lampoon the whole soap opera genre. Featuring performances from Wood herself, as well as Celia Imrie and long-term collaborator Julie Walters, the sketches are here brought together in one volume.
Grim Mancunian characters brought to life by Steve Coogan (creator of Alan Partridge), in two Bafta winning spoof video diaries. In 'Paul Calf's Video Diary', Steve plays the title character as he and his friends bum around Manchester by getting drunk and doing Chuck Norris impressions. Coogan also plays Paul's sister, Pauline, who turns up again as the leading role in the second video diary: 'Three Fights, Two Weddings and a Funeral'. In it, Pauline is engaged to marry Spiros, a Greek man she met on holiday, but Fat Bob (or Fat Robert Esquire as he prefers to be called) is also in love with her. Both films also star Patrick Marber, John Thomson and Gary Olsen. As an added extra, there are previously unreleased interviews with Paul and Pauline.
