In this fictional documentary series - a mockumentary, if you will - an interviewer seeks out ordinary British citizens as they go about their daily jobs. The interviewer's subjects are often hilariously bumbling in their work, as is the interviewer himself. The series aired on the BBC from 1995 to 1997.
