This year marks the 25th anniversary of Amnesty International’s ground-breaking comedy show, The Secret Policeman’s Ball. A new BBC Arena documentary has been filmed to mark the anniversary. It had its film premiere on 2 December and will have its TV premiere screening on 9 December.
On 15 November, a new DVD box set of the original shows plus the documentary went go on sale. And on the same day, a web site dedicated to the shows, featuring film and audio clips and a photo gallery, went live.
Narrated by Dawn French, the documentary includes interviews with many of the comedians and musicians who took part: John Cleese, Stephen Fry, Michael Palin, Sting, Lenny Henry and many more. Visit the BBC web site for more information about the documentary and for an exclusive interview with its director.
