UK Comedian Frank Skinner is to make what is hoped to be the World's longest single TV programme. It will be on the subject of swearing and is predicted to run for at least 48 hours. The world's ONLY West Bromwich Albion supporting comedian (how rare is that?) will be looking at how the use of expletives has changed the face of TV and brought it into the 21st century to make it much more exciting and unpredictable.
Skinner told In Seine News last night;
"I am going to have to go to bed for three days before presenting this Panorama 'current affairs' programme because we don't know for sure how long it's going to run. There is ample material out there - let's face it, the air will be deinitely blue - and not a conservative in sight!
There will be interviews with Jonathon Ross (The King of bad language), Ozzie Osbourne (Prince of Darkness), Gordon Ramsey (The chef who put the F in food) and Billy Connolley (one of the pioneers of bad language) who has the advantage of suffering Tourette's Syndrome.
It is notable that although this will be a programme about swearing, there will be a distinct lack of Lawyers. Neither will it feature Roy 'Chubby' Brown.
Not just to be content with the world's longest programme, Panorama will be followed by the world's shortest programme; 'Aunty Investigates Not Swearing' which is scheduled for under 60 seconds. Hardly worth the licence payer's money is it? An unnamed spokesman for the BBC is alleged to have said "We aim to break more records than Top of the Pops."
