This Granada TV sketch show peppered with musical moments starred Manchester musical satirists Alberto Y Lost Trios Paranoias alongside John Branwell and Annie Hulley,
Each episode took a specific theme based on a letter, with the episodes titled accordingly: F for Fantasy, M for Mystery, A for Arts, P for Pop, E for Explorers and K for Lying.
Songs added a noticeable Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band flavour to crazy comedy sketches such as a surgeon suffering from ‘fantasy flu’ (which made him think he was Paul Daniels) and an actual pirate bursting into a pirate radio station.
The six episodes were written by CP Lee of Alberto Y Lost Trios Paranoias and broadcast at 5.15 pm on Fridays in September and October 1982.
