Radio sitcom featuring Mark Evans and fellow Mitchell and Webb writer James Bachman. This was the description: Set in a world just like ours - only sillier and a lot more exciting - Zoom features the adventures of flatmates James and Mark and their ex-Special forces neighbour, Ken. In the pilot episode James and Mark - lifelong friends, lifelong rivals - find their world turned upside down when a new neighbour moves into the building. Before long she is playing loud music, coughing into a megaphone and playing her oompah records non-stop. Their attempts to regain control of their lives will take them on a thrilling journey involving Nicholas Parsons, Melvyn Bragg, Happy Shopper grenade launchers and an international poetry competition involving fists. In Zoom the stories are big, the characters are struggling, and you're only ever a few seconds away from something bad happening to Mark.
