Look Around You 2

Taking inspiration from the golden era of late Seventies and early Eighties television, Look Around You looks at the very latest developments in science and technology in one of the most consistently funny parodies you're ever likely to see.

This brilliantly original second series has the same well-observed hilarious brand of humour as the first BAFTA nominated series and is presented by the very talented Jack Morgan (Robert Popper), Peter Packard (Peter Serafinowicz), Pam Bachelor (Olivia Colman) and Pealy Maghti (Josie D'Arby). In a blaze of 1980s big hair, sideburns, ra-ra skirts and jumpsuits, this series also features cameos from some of the UK's finest comedy performers including Harry Enfield, Matt Lucas, Simon Pegg and Sarah Alexander.

Each episode the team considers the future of music, health, sport, music, food and computers - much as they did in the original Tomorrow's World series. Each week they are joined by guests, inventors and science specialists, looking at different inventions and testing out the latest technology.

The series culminates in a live final of the 'Look Around You Invention Of The Year Award' presented by HRH Sir Prince Charles. But with an excited live studio audience, a nervous group of contestants and one rather difficult and unpredictable guest, can the Look Around You team manage to keep everything going all right on the night?
