Welcome to the strange world of Armstrong & Miller which includes some comedy sketches with tough-guy cops in 'Parsons and Lampkin (and Lampkin's Mate Steve)', and there's an insider's view of National Trousers Day. More highlights include some really macho rock climbers, and the corrupt world of mountaineering. There's a track from rock legends Strijka, and you can also hear how Logarythm - the world's most successful school band - got together.
Alexander Armstrong and Ben Miller co-write and star in all four episodes of the complete BBC Radio 4 comedy spoof series. ‘The show that treats you - the kids - just like adults. Remember though, if you spoil it, you spoil it for everyone...’ Pompous critics and culture journalists Martin Bain-Jones (Armstrong) and Craig Children (Miller), present a frightfully clever culture show, a wry look at the fringes of popular music.
In an adventure of a lifetime, Alexander Armstrong heads north into an ever more hostile Arctic winter to explore the farthest reaches of the globe. In an epic journey, he navigates some of the Earth's toughest terrain, first travelling through the glittering landscape of Scandinavia then on to the isolated islands of Iceland and Greenland, as far as the infamously treacherous Northwest Passage. His final frontier is Canada and Alaska, where his journey ends on the international dateline between the USA and Russia.
