After a year and a half of regularity attending BBC Radio Recordings, I decided to try something different, the recording of a TV show. The show in question was the BBC 1 sitcom ‘Not Going Out’. The show focuses around Lee (played by comedian Lee Mack) who spends his life doing nothing and getting on the nerves of his landlady Lucy (Sally Bretton) and her friend Daisy (Katy Wix).
The episode I saw filming was form the seventh (and last) series of the show. Although I can’t tell you anything about the storyline (or else the beeb will probably chop of my head) but I can say that it was set in an unusual setting, much like the episode ‘Skiing’ from the sixth series.
It was interesting to see a TV show being made as opposed to radio. Each scene had to be recorded twice, plus the many more mishaps that took place. The audience was ‘entertained’ by comedian Ray Peacock whom has to be the least funny person to walk this earth. His jokes were rubbish, his laugh irritating and he seemed to take a lot of joy from scribbling in someone else’s book.
Although I couldn’t meet the main cast (due to trains ‘n’ stuff) I did manage to meet some of the guest stars including High Dennis! Plus I grabbed a selfie with a poster of Lee and Tim, is there anything better than that?
