The comedy icon returns to mark the 25th anniversary of his BBC debut. This evening weekday magazine show is a heady mix of consumer affairs, current affairs, and lightweight frothy drivel. Presenting This Time ‘as live’, Alan tries to keep proceedings ticking along while everything around him crumbles.
This kind of format can flip in the blink of an eye from a moving piece on child soldiers in West Africa to a VT about a vegetable growing competition in Yorkshire. With the sheer variety of topics covered, striking the right tone would be dizzyingly hard even for a skilled presenter. So, for Alan, it will be pretty much impossible.
Comedian Greg Davies and his loyal assistant Alex Horne return to BBC Brit with a multitude of tricksy tests and some woeful decision making as five new hyper-competitive UK comedians fight it out to be crowned Taskmaster Champion. Expect more cheating, blazing arguments.
As the UK's leading international television broadcaster, BBC Studios operates a diverse portfolio of channels around the world, bringing the best British factual, entertainment, children's and lifestyle programming to over 100 countries.
