Apparently, R4 is to broadcast a spoof "news" program from the nursery world, hosted by Jack Tweedledum and Jim Tweedledee, based on crimes and events happening in the nursery world!
I've just been reading nursery crime books (again) so this was uncanny. The first episode broadcasts Xmas Eve. Here's the blurb:
"Twin presenters John Tweedledum and Jim Tweedledee present in-depth news analysis covering the latest stories happening this 'once upon a time'.
The scandal of Jack and his genetically-modified beanstalk.
With Jack Dee, Peter Capaldi, Chris Addison, Lewis MacLeod, Lucy Montgomery, Vicki Pepperdine, Dan Tetsell.
Written by Ian Hislop and Nick Newman."
Wow. Like - has Ian Hislop been nicking ideas again or what?! I think the next one is on boxing day - what's the betting there'll be an egg involved?
Anyhow - here's the link. I suggest it might be better than yet another rerun of the "Fools and Horses Christmas Special", even without pictures.
