Alan Partridge finally gets a comeback series on the BBC.
Due to the sudden illness of its regular host, BBC One magazine show This Time welcomes Alan Partridge as its guest presenter. A chance for the consummate broadcaster to flit effortlessly between seal pups, hand washing and cyberterrorism.
Alan and the team host a special show dedicated to the memory of a much-cherished broadcaster. With viewers in shock, it falls to Alan to handle this delicate situation as only he can. But one man’s loss is another’s opportunity…
With exciting news on the show’s new presenting lineup, Alan and Jennie get their teeth into more of the pressing issues of the day: aggressive Scottishness, vegetarianism and a harrowing look at the abolition of corporal punishment.
Now established as the show’s permanent co-host, Alan is able to produce the kind of brave, no-nonsense TV other broadcasters can only dream of. Today, he talks police dog bravery and product placement before meeting his own celebrity lookalike.
A special programme focusing on the delicate issue of the #MeToo movement and a chance for Alan to show off his broadcasting chops. Features a live performance by Alan’s very own mixed vocal harmony group, The Quavers.
Faced with some of the toughest challenges that live TV can throw at a man - rancour behind the scenes, a viewer in danger, a segment on ladies fashion - Alan calls on ‘Sidekick’ Simon Denton to step up to the plate. But will they sink or swim?
