Auf Wiedersehen, PetNovember 11, 1983
Auf Wiedersehen Pet is a British comedy-drama series about seven British migrant construction workers who leave the UK to search for employment overseas. In the first series, they live and work on a building site in Düsseldorf, Germany. In the second series, they work for a dodgy businessman on a manor in the English countryside, and then his swimming pool at his villa in Spain. In the third series, set fifteen years later, they reunite for a big job on the Middlesbrough transporter bridge which results in them working in Arizona. In the fourth series, they work on a British embassy in Havana, Cuba.
The lead roles were performed by Tim Healy, Kevin Whately, Jimmy Nail, Gary Holton, Christopher Fairbank, Pat Roach and Timothy Spall.
Auf Wiedersehen, Pet was created by Franc Roddam after an idea from Mick Connell came to light. It was mostly written by Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais, who also wrote The Likely Lads, Whatever Happened to the Likely Lads? and Porridge. Stan Hey also contributed writing a number of episodes. The first two series were co-produced by Clement and LaFrenais's Witzend Productions and Central Television and the series were broadcast on ITV in 1983-1984 and 1986. A successful revival of the show saw two series and a Christmas special shown on BBC One in 2002 and 2004.
The show was the subject of the first episode of the BBC documentary series Drama Connections.

Al Murray's Happy HourJanuary 13, 2007
Al Murray's Happy Hour was a chat show presented by comedian Al Murray and produced by Avalon TV. The first series aired in early 2007. It is broadcast on the British terrestrial TV network, ITV, and the first series was broadcast on Saturday nights at 10pm. The second series aired on Fridays at 10pm. A third series returned to ITV on 12 September 2008, in the same 10pm Friday night slot.

They now show it the following Thursday at around 11.40pm, due to UTV regional programming on Friday nights. Murray presents the programme in his Pub Landlord persona: a stereotypically nationalistic, chauvinistic character.
