Like most people my Easter Sunday viewing was All About Two, a strangely formatted panel show celebrating 50 years of BBC 2. Watching the montages makes you realise just how many incredible comedies started their life on this channel; Miranda, Ab Fab, The Young Ones, The League of Gentleman and so many more. Regardless of the slightly wobbly jokes and unusual array of guests, the show certainly made the point: BBC 2 is awesome and let's have an Easter toast to another 50 years. P.S. Was it just me or was Richard Osman totally underused?Lucy Anne Gray, Gray Comedy, 21st April 2014
Television loves birthdays and anniversaries, so how much more exciting can it get than actually having an excuse to celebrate one of its own milestones with a special season of programmes? BBC Two is 50 years old this year (surely not, doesn't she look young?) and the festivities will be sprinkled across the schedules throughout the year.
Here Dara O'Briain and Pointless's Richard Osman hosts a 50th birthday quiz where celebrities are asked questions about BBC Two stars and programmes across the years. Guests include Hugh Dennis, Hairy Biker Dave Myers and Professor Brian Cox.Alison Graham, Radio Times, 20th April 2014
