Talkback Production's BBC comedy series 'I'm Alan Partridge' features an extra 20 minutes of footage when purchased on video. During the extra footage Alan Partridge suggests an idea for a television programme. His idea is a programme called 'Bonnington' - starring Brian Blessed. Alan says: "A screen mountaineering adventure with Brian Blessed in the title role. We could film on location on Everest with close-ups on Skarfelt pike; no-one will know the difference, we'll just paint the rocks white. I also know for a fact that Brian Blessed can work at high altitudes without oxygen -- which should cut costs".
