The all-killer, no-filler series dreamt up by Charlie Higson and Paul Whitehouse was known, appropriately, as Brilliant in the USA.

It breathed its last 20 years ago and Gold are celebrating the show with the first episode from 1994.

Magic moments include the debut of Ron Manager, the first of many awkward interactions between estate worker Ted and landowner Ralph and ‘Chanel 9’ with the weather forecast – ‘Scorchio!’
