Down The Line Series 3 | [Charlie Higson, Paul Whitehouse]

Down The Line Series 3

The third series of this live, uncompromising phone-in show hosted by award-winning talk radio DJ, Gary Bellamy, Gary Bellamy, from BBC TV’s ‘Bellamy’s People’. This is the original phone-in Radio 4 show that first introduced the host of BBC2’s ‘Bellamy’s People’. When it was launched in the Spring of 2006, Down the Line was such an accurate parody of an inane phone-in show that many Radio 4 listeners (and radio critics) thought it was the real thing and launched a storm of protest. What on earth was Radio 4 coming to?

Publisher's Summary

The third series of this live, uncompromising phone-in show hosted by award-winning talk radio DJ, Gary Bellamy, Gary Bellamy, from BBC TV’s ‘Bellamy’s People’. This is the original phone-in Radio 4 show that first introduced the host of BBC2’s ‘Bellamy’s People’.

When it was launched in the Spring of 2006, Down the Line was such an accurate parody of an inane phone-in show that many Radio 4 listeners (and radio critics) thought it was the real thing and launched a storm of protest. What on earth was Radio 4 coming to?

Seasoned comedy listeners, however, soon detected the presence of several well-known voices including members of The Fast Show team, and realised that this was something new and exciting in Radio 4 comedy.

Hosted by Rhys Thomas as the keen but none too bright Gary Bellamy, the show’s line-up of experts, idiots, bigots, nutters and bores is a snapshot of 21st century Britain and its obsessions; from the environment and immigration to large scale natural disasters and cosmetic surgery.

The show was largely improvised by the cast and sprinkled among the calls from the regulars (see front cover) are contributions from special guests including Omid Djalili and Lee Mack.

As Gary himself said in the original press release: ‘Down The Line is as thought-provoking, controversial, intelligent and well-informed as the average Radio 4 listener.’

    "Classic"

    I think Down The Line goes from strength to strength. A great concept, terrific writing and wonderfully performed. One of the best shows I've heard in ages and this third series is a classic.
