Jo Brand's Great Wall Of Comedy sees Jo Brand joined by comedy genius Barry Cryer and BAFTA Award-winning actress Rebecca Front as they uncover the stories and secrets behind the nation's greatest comedy treasures.

Each week the trio are joined by a host of star guests from the world of sitcom as they delve into the archives to reveal little known facts about our favourite comedy icons and shows.

This programme is technically a panel show, but the teams only face a few questions and much of the series is just chat and VT footage packed with trivia and stories.

Guests across the series include Tony Robinson (Blackadder), Vicki Michelle ('Allo 'Allo!), Dave Spikey (Phoenix Nights) and Hugh Dennis (Outnumbered), and there'll be VT appearances from Lesley Joseph (Bird of a Feather), June Whitfield (Absolutely Fabulous) and Andrew Sachs (Fawlty Towers).
