Girls On Top

I remember discovering Girls On Top late one night whilst tuning my black and white portable TV in my bedroom, as I cultivated another field of insomnia. It must have been a repeat, because the show originally aired at 8.30pm. It was written by Dawn French, Jennifer Saunders, and Ruby Wax, as a reply to The Young Ones.

Parts two and three are on YouTube. Worth a watch for Henry Kelly losing his rag because they refuse to engage his asinine questions.

If you fancy seeing the show, you should buy it. It’s well worth a few quid.
