Programme: Astronauts
Episodes: 13 (2 series)
Starring: Christopher Godwin, Carmen Du Sautoy, Barrie Rutter
Written by: Graeme Garden, Bill Oddie
Directed by: Douglas Argent
Synopsis: Britain's first three astronauts, Malcolm Mattocks, Gentian Foster and David Ackroyd, blast off into outer space to occupy a 'sky lab' for six months. Beadle, an antipathetic American, is the astronauts' contact at Mission Control.
BSG Review: All good sitcoms are meant to take place in a confined space and you can't get more confined than a spaceship. Despite the good premise the show never really took-off (excuse the pun).
