by Ben Miller. Tour de France

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. With Ben Miller , John Thompson ,

Alistair McGowan and Jim Barclay.

Producer Gareth Edwards

Comedy by Ben Miller.
