If you can get the BBC iplayer in your neck of the woods

Then some of the original series shows are available, as well as two of the three new shows which started on Monday this week. The last one is broadcast tonight in the UK so will be on the iplayer after that.

"The League of Gentlemen
Dark, surreal comedy about the strange inhabitants of the small town of Royston Vasey"

We have the league of roughnecks here in Kano, I bet they are stranger than any fiction on the BBC

I think "Royston Vasey" might well give them a run for their money, especially looking for "Dave" and the special meat at the butchers.

I feel it's a bit unfair to compare the BARC SW & Gurston to the League of Gentlemen & Royston Vasey, one is full of dark eccentric characters and the other is a popular comedy show on the BBC .............the sausages are always fresh at Gurston..!

ps will miss the midland competitors & cars at Gurston next year,

Thanks Russdav, Nice that someone will miss the Midlands competitors!! All the events I do are in England. As I come from Wales, does this mean I am not welcome at these events? We keep a "Huge welcome" in the hillside, here in Wales. All very welcome. I think some venues would struggle with a "local only" policy. I hope this isn't the case.

I might join the HSA as well, just to go and get a run down there as they’ve got a round there. I always missed it for some reason or another and this year we were determined to go.
