  1. Down the Line

    Down the Line is a British radio comedy broadcast on BBC Radio 4, which satirises populist radio phone-in shows. The show is written and performed in a style of heightened realism, as was BBC Radio 4's Knowing Me, Knowing You... with Alan Partridge. Down The Line is hosted by "Gary Bellamy". Down The Line was first broadcast in May 2006. The pre-show publicity did not indicate that the show was a pre-recorded comedy, describing it as a live phone-in featuring "award winning" DJ Gary Bellamy, and led to many complaints from listeners who apparently failed to spot it was a spoof, generating considerable publicity for the programme. It was subsequently revealed that the show is written and performed by several familiar figures in British comedy, including Paul Whitehouse and Charlie Higson. Regular 'callers' include: ⁕Christopher Nibbs from Pevensey Bay; a jokey character who refers to himself as 'Nibbsy' or 'The Nibbster'. Bellamy finds him amusing. ⁕Khalid, who only repeats topics of the show followed by the phrase 'what is point?' and responds to any subsequent remarks by Gary with the same question. Bellamy's attitude changes towards him as the series progresses.
