The Only Way Is East Sussex - lightly fictionalised documentary about the private lives of care home residents, bowls players, Rover drivers and an outrageously gay couple from Brighton.

One Foot In the Gravel - a cycling travelogue based on the Sustrans network.
+1  ;D

What I like about this is not only the satirical comment on Sustrans surfaces, but the sinister suggestion that using them gets you a little bit closer to your maker.

Surely that's a documentary on Speedway, Cycle or otherwise :)

You're thinking of the Shale & Pace show.

The title's a little ambiguous - would the doctor be the fister, or, er, the fistee?

A series of flashbacks over 30 years show a distinguished gentleman in North Africa negotiating his way through Juliette Binoche, Kristen Scott Thomas and all her sisters, whilst he waits for Gay Marriage to be legalised in the U.K.

I did some stunt driving on a film called Two Men Went to War.

Great film. Ealing comedy but based on a true story.

Could have been a change of career for me but was released the same week as another UK film - Harry Potter.

Am still stuck in the day job.

Embarrassing Boddies

People doing daft stuff like falling into canals, hugging traffic cones and ordering chicken phal they'll never be able to eat while blitzed on the eponymous and now defunct Manchester beer.

You’ll need the DVD. Most of my driving was in the deleted scenes.

However, if you see the scene where the young hero apparently gets shot. That’s me firing the gun.
