The Best of Not the 9 O'Clock News Volume One (2003) [DVDR (iso)]

Not the Nine O'Clock News was produced by John Lloyd. Lloyd pitched the idea to the heads
of BBC Comedy and Light Entertainment and was given a six-show series on condition that he
collaborate with Sean Hardie, who had worked in current affairs at the BBC.

The original cast was Rowan Atkinson, Christopher Godwin, John Gorman, Chris Langham,
Willoughby Goddard and Jonathan Hyde, and the show was planned for 2 April 1979. Originally
scheduled to air after Fawlty Towers, John Cleese was to have introduced the first episode in
a sketch referring to a technicians' strike then in progress, explaining (in character as
Basil Fawlty) that there was no show that week so a "tatty revue" would be broadcast instead.
However the 1979 general election intervened, and the show was pulled as too political. The
sketch with Cleese was broadcast later that year, when the final episode of Fawlty Towers
went out during the broadcast run of the first series of Not the Nine O'Clock News, though
the significance of the sketch was lost.

Lloyd and Hardie decided to recast the show, retaining Langham and Atkinson. They wanted to
bring in a woman. Victoria Wood turned the show down. Lloyd met Pamela Stephenson at a party
and she agreed to join. Atkinson, Langham and Stephenson were joined by Mel Smith. The first
series was criticised for being "a poor mix of stand up, and a mild portion of sketches". This
left the BBC with sketches which depended upon a second series; seven episodes were
commissioned. Langham was replaced by Griff Rhys Jones, who had already appeared in minor
roles. The second series won the Silver Rose at the Montreux Festival and a BAFTA award for
Best Light Entertainment Programme in 1982.

The show ran for 27 episodes of 30 minutes:

* October 16, 1979–November 20, 1979: six episodes
* March 31, 1980–May 12, 1980: seven episodes
* October 27, 1980–December 15, 1980: eight episodes
* February 1, 1982–March 8, 1982: six episodes

These have rarely been repeated, instead 8 re-cut and condensed (to make it 'faster and funnier
than ever') 'episodes' are shown instead. This is volume 1 of the 2. This is primarily due to the
fact that the original episodes in their entirety lampooned events that were in the news at the
time - the gag would be lost on a modern audience - to make the episode funny, it would be
necessary to 7screen the nine o'clock news before the episode - or at least an edited summary.

The main writers included David Renwick, Colin Bostock-Smith, Andy Hamilton, Peter Brewis,
Richard Curtis, and Clive Anderson.[5] However, the producers accepted scripts for sketches
from a wide range of writers and ensured the show remained topical by recording sketches only
days before broadcast. Howard Goodall (subsequently composer of the Red Dwarf, Blackadder and
The Vicar of Dibley theme music) was musical director. Bill Wilson directed the first three
series, Geoff Posner the fourth.
