A police sitcom from the BBC's Manchester-based Comedy Unit. 10:96 starred Neil Fitzmaurice (Phoenix Nights) and Chris Bisson (Coronation Street) as two police officers patrolling Manchester's rough but fictional Langthorpe Estate. Fitzmaurice played acting Sergeant Gary Barnes, who was overly-sensitive about causing offence and consequently often said the wrong thing to his Asian partner, rookie PC David Sands.
