On this day in 1996, Fargo was released in cinemas. On this day in 1987, NBC aired the last ever episode of The A-Team. But also, on this day in ’96, as it was a Friday, you could have watched BBC Two all night, and had a great time.

Is that the Bodger & Badger puppet? I doubt it.
Red Dwarf was next, with the return of the Polymorph, in Emohawk. You wouldn’t have seen this scene at the time though.

After Newsnight, you could have sniffed a repeat of The Smell Of Reeves & Mortimer.
Before finally, seeing in the next day with The All New Alexei Sayle Show.
