Naked video gregor fisher
Naked Radio was a radio sketch show which broadcast on BBC Radio Scotland and started its ten-year run on 22 January 1981. The show covered all aspects of Scottish society and contained a lot of topical satire material rather than parody. The series starred Gregor Fisher, Andy Gray, Elaine C. Smith, Tony Roper, Jonathan Watson, Kate Donnelly, Louise Beattie, and Ron Bain. The series was produced by Colin Gilbert and the script editor was Philip Differ.
Naked Radio proved a popular part of the local schedule, and in 1985 the cast mounted the show on stage at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Gilbert realised it had potential for television and Naked Video was born. It proved popular at a time when alternative comedy was at its peak. The Naked Radio series finished in 1991, when it was axed along with Naked Video.
The show also spawned a radio spinoff; Only An Excuse, which later also made the transition to television.
Naked Video featured:
There were 30 episodes made over its 6-year run. Each was 25 minutes long, all shown on BBC2
To date the first three series of Naked Video have been released on DVD by 2 Entertain.
As yet series 4 and 5 have not been released.
In 2000, the cast were reunited for a theatre show and radio broadcast.
In 2005, Gerard Kelly presented a documentary in the Radio Roots season on Radio Scotland about the show. It looked at how it "sprouted a generation of TV writing and performing talent".
