Torrent description

There is a site called thebox dot BZ that specializes in British television. There is some brilliant stuff there that deserves wider exposure. This show, THE HIGH LIFE, is something I saw a few episodes of on BBCAmerica and thought to be wonderfully funny, so I am offering it up on more accessible trackers. The first episode (S01E00) is an unbroadcast pilot that isn’t too good as shot, it is just included for purists. Watch S01e01 to get a REAL feeling for this show.

The contents of this torrent are almost exactly unaltered from the original. I have added some screenshots, Wikipedia entry, and technical information, and have had to delete the .nfo file because some of the site I load to think such files are malware (idiots). Therefore, in the accompanying .txt file of this torrent, the very last section has the .nfo file text.

Great thanks to the OL, and I encourage everyone to check out thebox dot BZ and radioarchive dot CC for great BBC materials.

The High Life was a Scottish situation comedy written by and starring Forbes Masson as Steve McCracken and Alan Cumming as Sebastian Flight. Cumming and Masson met at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama and united after several solo projects, to create the theatrical BBC sitcom, The High Life. The two leads were based heavily on their famous Scottish comedy alter-egos, Victor and Barry.

The series followed the cabin crew at the fictional airline, Air Scotia, flying out of Prestwick Airport. The crew consisted of the camp, alcohol-loving, narcissistic and bitchy steward, Sebastian; his sex-obsessed colleague Steve; their up-tight, antagonistic chief stewardess, Shona Spurtle; and the eccentric pilot, Captain Hilary Duff.

Sebastian and Steve longed to be promoted to long-haul flights to see exotic locations, instead of the current short-haul trips with their superior Shona, played by Siobhan Redmond, whom they described as 'Hitler in tights', ‘Mussolini in Micromesh‘ and ‘Goebbels in a Gossard‘. The deranged pilot, Captain Duff, played by Patrick Ryecart, would need to be frequently reminded who he was, where the cockpit was and where he was flying to.

Interspersed with surrealism, childish humour, sarcasm and theatrical song and dance numbers; The High Life combined intelligent dialogue and superb comic acting to create an anarchic Scottish sitcom. It only ran for one series due to Alan Cumming being beckoned towards Hollywood; however during an interview, Masson claims that a second series was written, yet not acted upon. Despite its short-run, it is remembered for Steve and Sebastian’s joint catchphrase: ‘Oh deary me!’ and for the opening sequence which featured the cast performing a spectacular dance routine to the title song.

The series ran for six thirty minute episodes. The Comic Asides pilot was broadcast on BBC2 at 9pm on Sunday 9 January 1994. The series of six episodes were broadcast on Friday Nights at 9.30pm between 6 January and 10 February 1995.

The entire series (including the pilot) was released on VHS and DVD in 2002.
