BBC Two

BBC Two is the British Broadcasting Corporation's second major terrestrial television channel. It aims to deliver intelligent yet popular comedy shows and, as a result, the programmes shown on this channel tend to be a bit more quirky and cult than those on BBC One. In the last few years a notable number of BBC2's sitcoms have badly flopped, but the channel has generated some popular shows. These include Lead Balloon, That Mitchell and Webb Look and Never Mind The Buzzcocks. Previous hits include QI (now on BBC1) and the worldwide smash hit sitcom The Office.
