Series 1 of Naked Video aired in 1986 off the back of a succesful Scottish radio programme, now I was born in 1986 myself so I definitely can't remember it first time round but having thoroughly enjoyed recent Scottish comedies such as Still Game and Legit, I thought that there was nothing to lose in going back and watching some of the countries older work.
This series which almost consists solely of Andy Gray, Gregor Fisher and Helen Lederer is extremely entertaining, two of the characters Rab C Nesbitt and The Baldy Men ended up with their own shows and I dare say that many of the other sketches went on to highly influence other comedy acts. It seems That I Have News For You completely stole their work from the spoof news section of Naked Video, you can also see that this had a heavy influence on The Fast Show later on (Whitehouse, Higson and Enfield all worked as writers on Naked Video at some point or another, as did Rik Mayall).
One of my particular favourite sketches is the Welsh poet Siadwell (played by John Sparkes), he has a particularly dry sense of humour and a great way of telling stories, slipping in numerous killer punch lines.
Although the programme has definitely dated and there are political references to the time as well as spoofs of various presenters and musicians who may not be recognised by many today - it's still extremely entertaining.
