Celebrating the 25th anniversary of Norwich’s favourite fictional son, Steve Coogan talks about the history of Alan Partridge.
First appearing on Radio 4 as the sports reporter on On The Hour alongside anchor Chris Morris, he then moved to TV on The Day Today and briefly hit the big time with Knowing Me Knowing You with Alan Partridge. From there is career went in one direction: down, presenting the 2am-5am slot on Radio Norwich in I’m Alan Partridge, and later moving to North Norfolk Digital to present his Mid-Morning Matters.
This show features previously unseen footage from improv sessions, outtakes, and a look into Partridge’s future as he becomes the BBC’s face of Brexit.
Alan Partridge: Why, When, Where, How and Whom? is on BBC Two at 21.00.
