BritCom Q&A


At what location in the West Midlands is this show filmed?

The exterior shots for the series were filmed in the town of Coventry.


Really enjoyed the new (4) episodes. Was this the last they will do or will there be future new episodes? It seemed the story line was left open for future ones. (Grandchildren, etc.)

The latest news we have heard is this is the last we will be receiving. But, we have to leave the door open just in case they decide to make more and if budgets permit, we'll have them on the air.


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.
