It was the popular television comedy show that popularised the catchphrase ‘Get tae Falkirk’.
Now a reunion of the cast of Channel 4 programme ‘Absolutely’ has landed a radio producer from the town a prestigious industry award.
Gus Beattie, who began his career at Central FM, masterminded ‘Sketchorama: Absolutely Special’ which was broadcast on BBC Radio 4 last year.
It brought back together the cast of ‘Absolutely’, a sketch show that was originally broadcast from 1989-1993.
Gus, from Falkirk, was in London last week to hear the radio reunion named best scripted comedy for a studio audience at the BBC Audio Drama Awards.
“I was a huge fan of Absolutely so it was a fantastic honour to bring the show together,” said Gus, who now works for a Glasgow production company.
‘I’m so pleased it’s now won an award as the cast did a magnificent job in bringing their characters back up to date.”
The ‘Sketchorama: Absolutely Special’ will be repeated on Monday, February 10 at 11 p.m. on BBC Radio 4.
