Alan Partridge's Scissored Isle

Steve Coogan returns in his iconic role, winning him the BAFTA for Best Male Performance in a Comedy. Scissored Isle also won the International Emmy for Best Comedy.

Following a controversial on-air incident, Alan attempts to make amends.

Leaving behind his comfortable existence and vast detached house, Alan takes a journey of redemption. He journeys into an unreported Britain inhabited by the very people he had offended to ask whether, in this once united kingdom, a 'schasm' has formed - a schism or chasm, between the haves and the have-nots (or haven'ts).

From supermarket staff to payday lenders, disaffected street gangs to food scavenging 'freegans', Alan pledges to move among them; to understand them; to see the world through their eyes. And - god willing - along the way become a better citizen, a better man and a better, more sought-after broadcaster.
