Don't Dare - Failed Pilots of the Future

Deaf and Dumb Borstal - the screenplay of Scum told entirely in the medium of the ever humorous speech patterns of the profoundly deaf. Includes strong language, but you'd never know unless you were really concentrating.

Reply from BBC: Thank you for your submission. You may well be correct that this would be funny for the first five minutes, but we have certain reservations that it may prove offensive to the aurally challenged.

Seven Brides for Seven Sisters - the Howard Keel musical, using the music of the Smiths. Main scene: Howard on the edge of a cliff singing 'I Know it's Over' in a powder blue shirt and very tight trousers.

Reply from BBC: Many thanks for your interesting proposal. We swithered over this one for quite some time, with a good deal of interest from BBC2 in particular, but will have to pass as, sadly, it turns out that Mr Keel is in fact dead.

Joey's Joey - Joey Deacon, iconic seventies mentalist, in a series of wacky adventures with his kangaroo chum.

Scrawled post-it from BBC: You are kidding presumably? All we can suggest is killing the kangaroo and having its spirit talk to Mr Deacon, then try sending it to LivingTV.

You forgot about the one that involves simply listening to two fat blokes rant on their journeys to and from work.

I'm losing weight so fast though that that description no longer applies. If I get much thinner then our sketch show will have to be called soemthing along the lines of 'Fattpiuff and the Thiniffer'.
