Funny I just saw a thread for Morwenna Banks cos I was just gonna bring up that old chestnut 'Absolutely', a superb Channel 4 sketch show featuring Morwenna and Radio 4's 'the Bodgers'. Anyone remember it? It was hilarious!

I think that there was a thread about it a while back. Never seen it myself, but I'm aware of it.

I loved Absolutely and think I started a thread a while back. Don't remember the Bodgers though. What was that about?

As far as i was concerned that was one ofthe most annoying of their sketches. There were much much better ones butit almost became their catch phrase.

... The 'Bodgers' was a Radio 4 sketch show featuring the lads who later did 'Absolutely'. Some of their stuff was remade for the telly. Not a classic series - fun rather than funny - but always enjoyable.

A favourite bit was the bloke on the lav - Frank I think - philosophising and coming up with the immortal line "The bus was coming and so was I". Classic stuff.
