Robert Popper and Peter Serafinowicz's wonderful mock-educational-film-parody BBC2 show "Look Around You" celebrated its 10th anniversary this week. Robert writes,
We had a fantastic night at the BFI in London, which showed all 8 eps back to back. The amazing Jonathan Ross hosted the evening, and our brill director, Tim Kirkby, joined us for a fun Q and A. It was a really touching, lovely event full of our old crew members and Look Around You aprreciators. Thanks all for coming. It meant a lot to us.
Anyway, Peter and I made a new short especially for the evening. So, here it is for everyone else. Hope you like our ‘Intermission Film’…
Congratulations, Robert and Peter! I raise a glass of sulphagne to toast your achievement.
