On The Blog

Radio 2's new comedy series about how computers and the internet are gradually infiltrating every aspect of people's lives.

Both a sitcom and a wicked satire of the internet's many absurdities, On The Blog's 'hero' is Andrew Glasgow, the assiduous keeper of a 'blog'.

Part confessional and part performance, blogging has been heralded as the biggest revolution in journalism since the invention of radio but, as Andrew demonstrates, it's really just a jamboree for the kind of people who write round-robins at Christmas and also a massive repository of staircase wit.

Andrew blogs obsessively about his life and loves.

In his case, this is a collection of military war-gaming enthusiasts, some tiny painted pewter soldiers, his terrifying Czech mother and the mysterious Mr Demjanjuk.

A shocking new dawn has broken in the world of Andrew Glasgow (Andy Taylor). He's finally severed ties with his terrifying Sudeten-Czech mother (Caroline Quentin) and decided to move out of home.
