This documentary celebration of Steve Coogan’s most famous creation also acts as a warm-up for Alan’s return to TV next year.

From his debut on BBC radio, when Alan was just a jobbing sports correspondent on Chris Morris’s On the Hour, right up to Peak Partridge, the feature film Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa (showing tomorrow 11.30pm), this is a frequently very funny mix of Alan’s best (ie most cringe-inducing) moments, interviews and clips of Steve and co improvising like crazy while trying to keep a straight face.
