There is memeage going around, based on Mitch Benn's wonderful I'm Proud of the BBC , this is the list of all the shows/people he mentions, you bold what you've seen/heard, leave plain the stuff that you don't like and strike through what you haven't seen. Thanks to [personal profile] nanaya for eating my morning.

Toni Arthur- Who?
Brian Cant - I think you'll find that's Sir Brian of Cant, surely?
Adam Adamant
- I've heard of it, wasn't it created at the same time as Doctor Who? I don't know whether Sydney Newman was involved but I'm fairly sure Verity Lambert produced, but I don't think it's been repeated that often after it's initial creation.

Yes Minister
Later with Jools Holland
Pride and Prejudice
