01Tour De France1992111920200312 (BBC7)

Surreal comedy in which a trio of 'posties' get embroiled in escapades.

Surreal comedy in which a trio of 'posties' get embroiled in escapades. Stars Ben Miller.

Everyone goes on and on about how boring professional cycling is compared to the 1980s. So if Brian, Derek and Sue have to leave the Post Office to look after itself for a bit, and do something about it then it's really ungrateful to start complaining.

Anyway, sorting mail is much harder than it looks, so they probably need a break. And it'll be loads better than some of the rubbish on telly these days.

The surreal escapades of a trio of 'posties' written by and starring Ben Miller. With John Thompson and Felicity Montagu.

It's very important to remember that the French Foreign Legion is a ruthless and violent fighting unit, so if Brian, Derek and Sue find themselves fighting the Tuareg in a fort in Africa then they deserve our admiration.

And anyway, they only joined by mistake.
