    And another! Coincidentally I saw a bit of this being filmed, as one of the properties is at the end of my road.

    Yeah, I had it down as The Colonel, but I guess a Fawlty Towers reference would be beyond our Michael. Told me it was Desert Storm.

    I think the quiz is a bit suss. When it returned the results - 7/10 - it was showing me as answering questions that I hadn't selected.

    Who'd have thought the old graunian would have the nous and attention to detail in order to make an internet quiz that actually worked.

    It did seem to work for me, fwiw.

    Yeah it's fucked on mobile at least, said I got 3/10 but had changed loads of my answers.

    Counted it up properly and I got 10/10. Kiss my Face!

    I'm so glad Alan is coming back to his spiritual home. I'll admit as a young teen Knowing Me Knowing You passed me by, but that Christmas special that preceded I'm Alan brought me into the fold.

    Looking it up sounds like it's a mock one show type thing about brexit. Which doesn't sound great.

    Alan Partridge: Why, When, Where, How And Whom?

    It has been a quarter of a century since a little-known sports reporter was given his own radio chat show by the BBC. Two radio series, five TV series, four specials, two books and one movie later, Alan Partridge has an unrivalled place in the comedy pantheon.

    To celebrate Alanís return to his rightful home at the BBC in 2018, this retrospective documentary will look back at his journey from broadcaster caricature to the award-winning study of complexity and pathos that he has become.

    We will hear from the man behind the man himself, Steve Coogan, as well as the acclaimed team that created him 25 years ago. That cohort of writers and performers would become some of the most celebrated and distinctive comic voices of their generation: Armando Iannucci, Patrick Marber, Peter Baynham, Rebecca Front, David Schneider and Doon Mackichan. Through interviews and a wealth of never-before-seen archive footage, including improv sessions, rehearsals and unseen outtakes a light will be shone on the genesis of the character.

    This richly textured account of the craft involved in that early development and the ongoing story of how, through Coogan's virtuoso performance, Alan remains one of the most beloved comic creations of the last few decades.

    The programme will also feature discussions with some of the best loved characters in Alanís world; the likes of Felicity Montagu (Lynn), Simon Greenall (Michael), Sally Phillips (Sophie the receptionist), Phil Cornwell (Dave Clifton) and Tim Key (Sidekick Simon). And we'll hear from writers and directors, Neil and Rob Gibbons, who inherited the Partridge mantle and, alongside Coogan, have taken the character to new heights, finding in each incarnation different ways of exploring Alan while being faithful to the character's legacy.

    Through all these voices, archive material, and iconic clips from the shows themselves, the show will explore Alan's unprecedented cultural influence, his impact on the comedy landscape, and how the most entertainingly contemptible man in fictional light entertainment has become permanently embedded in the national vernacular.

    As user jimnastics says he's back on the BBC this year in This Time with Alan Partridge, which sounds like more Knowing Me Knowing You.

    Yeah would have preferred another sitcom style thing than a talkshow to be honest.

    Are they doing an episode about Alan Partridge taking a brave and principled stand against the gutter press which is no way at all motivated about stories about celebrities who take drugs and fuck whores?

    Armando Iannucci not being involved disappoints me a lot.
