British Comedy Guide

BBC Opportunities - Comedy/Comedy Drama - Anyone know who the judges were over the past few years?


I'm curious about the old BBC Opportunities competitions for Comedy and Comedy Dramas going back about 5 years. Does anyone know exactly who the judges were for these? Were they scriptwriters? Were they jobbing BBC Scriptwriters (i.e. well known)? Interns with no experience? Was their 'judgement' double-checked or was it enough that they looked at scripts once and didn't like them?

Were you a judge for these? Could you explain the procedure?

They've obviously changed things in the last couple of year to where you need to have a production company support your work but I'm asking about the period before that.
