The first episode of the new series, in which viewers are introduced to The Helivets - pink jump-suit clad heroes who claim they can save any pet in peril. And there's a director whose art mimics life and whose credits include The Man Who Has A Cough And It's Just A Cough And It's Fine.

Also featured are The Carry On Hospital, in which a young doctor finds himself working in a bawdy Seventies hospital, but can't quite master innuendo, and Bigfeet and Redbeard, two stone-age workers put out by the thought of having to attend a bronze orientation day.

The episode also includes a clip from a documentary sensitively entitled The Boy With An Arse For A Face, the ultimate football trail, and a thrilling new action movie based on the world-famous Numberwang game show.
