The Revolution Will Be Televised

BAFTA winning comedy for BBC 3

  • Challenge

    It was 2012 and the country was still on a brutal comedown from the heady high of Cleggmania. Suffice it to say, politics was a little blander back then and young people were in the grips of a deep apathy. How could we make politics appealing to a BBC3 audience that was more interested in Lee Nelson than Nelson Mandela?

  • Insight

    We were determined to use daring comedy stunts to politically engage young people in a way that hadn’t been done before.

  • Solution

    We created a TV sensation that made satire feel relevant and exciting again to a whole new generation. It brought home a sweet, sweet Bafta and received another nomination again the following year.
