Classic British Comedy on DStv this April

BRACE yourselves this April as BBC Entertainment dedicates two days of non stop family sitcoms plus a host of the world’s most popular classic sitcoms to DStv audiences across Africa.

Starting Friday, April 10 from 9am to 8pm the channel’s award-winning shows will keep viewers glued to your screens.

Tune in for a whole day classic sitcoms, featuring some of Britain’s best loved television characters. As Time Goes By is the classic tale about a young Army officer called Lionel and a student nurse named Jean who meet in the 1950s.

The story goes on to tell off their whirlwind romance which ended when Lionel was posted to Korea. Then however, a lifetime later, the pair meet up again by chance, but the course of true love and romance never quite runs smoothly, or does it? To find out don’t miss As the Time Goes By which stars the acclaimed Dame Judi Dench and Geoffrey Palmer.

Then at 11am audiences can tune for one of the most loved classics films ever, if not the most loved! Ever since Faulty Towers first hit UK screens in 1975, Basil Fawlty (John Cleese) has been one of TV’s best loved characters. The show itself has become cult viewing in over 60 countries worldwide and it remains a bona fide classic that hasn’t lost any of its hilarious appeal.

Basil is the much put-upon, hard-working hotel manager whose life is plagued by problematic guests, humourless hotel inspectors and general riff-raff, but his main obstacle to an easy life is his nagging wife Sybil (Prunella Scales) —— who he affectionately names his “nest of vipers” — and his useless trainee waiter from Barcelona, Manuel (Andrew Sachs).

From Classic sitcoms to family sitcoms that will be enjoyed by the whole family, BBC Entertainment has it all. If you’re on of those viewers who just can’t get bear to spend even a minute away from your loved ones then DStv has just the thing for you!

Tune in on Monday, April 13 (8.50am to 8pm) as BBC Entertainment brings audiences a day of comedy gold with some of the BBC’s most popular family sitcoms. Kick starting the family day is the phenomenally successful family comedy All My Family.

In this the sixth series DStv viewers see Ben (Robert Lindsay) getting his house —— and his life —— back as the kids move away. However, what happens when it starts filling up again? Stay tune to find out.

Tune in for BBC Entertainment’s Classic sitcoms day on Friday, April 10 (9am to 8pm ) and its family sitcoms day on Monday 13 April (8.50am  to 8pm) on channel 120 on DStv.
