its surprising how much influence this guy has had in british comedy of the last decade or so and he's got a few new things lined up so i thought i'd give him a quick heads up here.

'the thick of it' is a new political satire style show starring chris langham. described by chris morris as 'very, very good indeed', it starts on bbc4 on 19th may.

'armando iannucci's charm offensive' starts on wednesday on radio 4, and will be 'topical'.

'time trumpet' is a fake history programme which is set in 2050 and deals with events between now and then.

and as for partridge? he mentions 'a possible film, set on a british moon base: mike leigh in space. nothing happens, except maybe a massive alien attack near the end.'

so three shows to look forward to. just don't hold your breath for the partridge film...
