In 1999 Channel 4's Harry Hill show - loved by thousands - was cancelled amid public outcry and rancour. Star and writer of the show Harry Hill has not spoken to the Badgers, his Big Brother Alan, Son Alan, Burt Kwouk or any of the original cast since.
As Channel 4 celebrates its 30th birthday the Harry Hill gang look back at the series, work out where it all went wrong and see if they can put their differences behind them to reunite for one last Reunion Special.
This specially commissioned (spoof) documentary investigates the rise and fall of The Harry Hill Show, which originally ran for three series on Channel 4. The programme talks to the surviving members of the cast and the reclusive floppy-collared genius who created it.
We learn of Harry Hill's addiction to oily fish and how he used to beat the cast with a stick to get them to do things (a bit like the Orangutan on Every Which Way But Loose). We uncover details of Brother Alan's secret affair with Tasmin Archer Badger and Burt Kwouk's dislike of Harry's singing voice.
