The third series of the controversial BBC Radio 4 phone-in show. When it was launched in the Spring of 2006, Down the Line was such an accurate parody of an inane phone-in show that many Radio 4 listeners (and radio critics) thought it was the real thing and launched a storm of protest. What on earth was Radio 4 coming to? Seasoned comedy listeners, however, soon detected the presence of several well-known voices including members of The Fast Show team, and realised that this was something new and exciting in Radio 4 comedy.
Hosted by Rhys Thomas as the keen but none too bright Gary Bellamy, the show’s line-up of experts, idiots, bigots, nutters and bores is a snapshot of 21st century Britain and its obsessions; from the environment and immigration to large scale natural disasters and cosmetic surgery.
The show was largely improvised by the cast and sprinkled among the calls from the regulars (see front cover) are contributions from special guests including Omid Djalili and Lee Mack.
