OK, I know it's a repeat screening and originally hit the airwaves back in February, but did anyone manage to catch the above show? Brilliant spoof documentary from Peter Capaldi with some cleverly done send-ups (especially the Carry On-style comedies and a spot-on Quatermass parody) of British cinema from years gone by. Still on iPlayer for a week or so if you wish to give it a look.

I knew nothing about it before watching and for the first couple of minutes thought it was a serious documentary. Beautifully done the way you suddenly realise it's a spoof.

Does iPlayer have an end date? I'm not in the UK right now, so can't watch it 'til I return.

It said 7 days left this morning so guessing it'll be taken off next Monday. Wouldn't be at all surprised if BBC4 repeats it again in the near future though.
