Do you remember one of my Talking Point's in May, asking why so many popular BBC Scotland comedies aren't available to the rest of the UK? Well, it feels like someone read that post at the BBC and decided to do something about it! Or I just got lucky talking about an issue someone was already preparing to put right this summer...
Whatever the reason, military sitcom Gary: Tank Commander and sketch show Burnistoun are coming to BBC3 and BBC2, respectively. The downside is that Tank Commander's timeslot is just before midnight at 11:45pm, so set your generic digital recording box. Even so, it'll be interesting to see if these shows prove to be a hit with viewers outside of Scotland..
Gary Tank Commander / BBC Three / Monday 25 July, 11:45pm
Burnistoun / BBC Two / Coming Soon
