I’ve had a meeting today with the awesome man who will be my BA thesis supervisor (No really, he is fantastically British and knowledgeable and kind and everyone loves him and he is insanely popular as a supervisor, so I am massively chuffed!) and he made me think about a suitable subject. All I’ve known for a while is that I want to write about British radio comedy, but I’ve yet to decide what direction I want to take it in. One idea was to pick 3 radio shows that have been transformed into TV shows and discuss the changes that have been made to make it suitable for a visual medium, but I’m not quite sure about that yet.
If any of you have any good ideas or know of any articles, books or programmes about radio comedy, could you please send them my way? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
Why is BBC3 constantly insulting the intelligence of young people by making series like ‘Pramface’? Not all ‘yoofs’ are interrested in stories about young spotty twattamaboobs who are ‘desperately single’ and then accidentally impregnating someone/getting pregnant.
And documentaries about sex that are pretty much a primary school level biology lesson with a voiceover by an ‘ethnic yoof’ who has only just mastered the art of reading out loud… Wtf bbc, srsly?!
