Is anyone else watching this 'interesting' excuse for comedy? Probably not, as it appears to have been listed as a nature programme. And perhaps rightly so: it's ... well, not funny. IMO. Takes footage from the BBC's natural history archive and dubs it with 'speech' written and performed by Jason Manford and a number of others.

NATURE: Walk On The Wild Side
On: BBC One
Date: Saturday 28th March 2009
Time: 17:05 to 17:35

Meet the Not-Very-Scary-Sharks, the Scratching Badgers, the DIY Orangutan, the Vultures' Flying School and a marmot called Alan. They all come together in this show which combines the comedy talents of Jason Manford and friends together with some jaw-dropping natural history footage.

Starring: Jason Manford, Harriet Carmichael, Rhod Gilbert, Sarah Millican, Harry Peacock, Isy Suttie

Sounds awful. One of the worst things on TV is clips of animals dubbed with 'comical' human speech to make it appear as if the animals are talking.

Yes, it was indeed awful. My new year's resolution, both this and last year, was to watch every new episode of British comedy. But this, there's 7 more episodes. I barely managed one. I'm filing it as family-friendly entertainment so I don't have to watch any more.
