Watching Neighbours Twice a Day...How ’90s TV (Almost) Prepared me for Life

Winter Weekend 2021, 

Do you remember when viewing at a certain time was still a thing? When you spent 3.30pm-5.30pm every day watching CBBC? A forgotten or unknown time for some, but a treasured childhood for the comedian whose memoir revisits the TV of our past, from the CBBC Broom Cupboard, Live & Kicking, Eldorado and Big Break to C4’s bespoke Saturday morning sports output featuring Kabaddi. In conversation with his brother Henry, he reflects on his strange upbringing in Dartmoor where there were only four people in his year at school, and at home they didn’t just leave the front door unlocked, they didn't even have a key.
