On The Town was The League Of Gentlemen's BBC Radio 4 Show Set in the fictional town of Spent..
The League of Gentlemen is primarily a sitcom, albeit an unusual one. It consists of a series of sketches which come together to form an overall story. Since all the action takes place, and nearly all the characters live, in the same village, there is much overlap, and the events and characters of one story play a part in the lives of others, much as in a soap opera. There is usually a main plot to which the minor stories tend to be tenuously connected.
In the radio series, the plot involved outsider Benjamin Denton visiting his aunt and uncle in Spent to be interviewed for a job at the local power plant.
Not surprisingly, he missed the interview and was forced to stay longer than expected.
On The Town was first aired on Radio 4 on 6th November 1997.
