Look Around You
was a comedy show developed by Mivvin
and the BBC
and shown on British TV in 2002. It parodies the Open University
and Television for Schools and Colleges
educational programmes developed during the 1970s and 1980s (and which are still occasionally shown on TV even now). The episodes are short (around 10-15 minutes each), but are still hilarious
The first series consisted of eight episodes:
There is a DVD
out with all of these episodes, which also includes the pilot episode, "Calcium".
