Background

British Sitcom GuideThe British Comedy Guide started life in 2003 as a small website called The British Sitcom Guide, consisting of a few brief pages about key sitcoms such as Fawlty Towers and Blackadder. The site has grown in the decade since, becoming the most-visited website in the world about British comedy.

The BCG is owned and run by founder Mark and co-editor Aaron, who heads up all archive comedy coverage. However, they do not work alone, valuing the assistance of a group of regular volunteer contributors, lead by Ian, the main curator of our TV & radio schedule.
