  • Little Britain is a British character-based sketch comedy that was first broadcast on BBC radio and then turned into a television programme. It was written and performed by comic duo David Walliams and Matt Lucas. The programme's title is an amalgamation of the terms Little England and Great Britain. The programme consists of a series of sketches involving exaggerated parodies of British people from all walks of life in various situations familiar to a British audience. Each of them is introduced with a voice-over narration in a manner which suggests that the programme is a guide – aimed at non-British people – to the ways of life of various classes of British society. Despite the narrator's description of "great British institutions", the comedy arises from the British audience's self-deprecating understanding of either themselves or of people known to them. The programme's title is in part an elaboration of the term Little England(er): a reference to narrow-mindedness and complacent insularity – as exhibited, to humorous effect, by many of the (recurring) subjects of the sketches. The programme was a huge ratings success, receiving 9.5 million viewers following its move to BBC One in 2005. (en)
