In this popular series, and subsequent array of comedy specials, Stanley Baxter turns his attention firmly to the screen, both big and small, in a series of eagle-eyed spoofs.

Taking on everything from Hollywood musical extravaganzas to television news, topical programming and soaps, Baxter's uncanny impressions range from specific, very recognisable faces, to broad characterisations in format spoofs, all exhibiting his broad talents: singing, dancing, comic acting and mimicry alike.
