He interviewed Tim Spall in 2010 and you can see it on youtube. He talks about Auf Pet and the fact that although it was hugely succesfull work dried up for him afterwards and almost lead him to go bankrupt.

just watched it and dissappointed that auf pet only referred to for about a minute - but a good watch otherwise

Not a bad watch, for us Pet fans it was nothing new. But i learned a lot of stuff about the two writters i didn't know.
Also, It was funny watching Mark Lawson pronounce Auf Wiedersehen Pet, with his speech impedement :D

Yes, the interview heavily featured 'The Likely Lads' only touching on 'The Pet' for 5 minutes which was a shame.

Quote of the night:

Clement on Oz: “ we wrote him as someone that we didn’t approve of, he didn’t send money home to his wife, and then the audience fell in love with him, it was the most extraordinary thing… and house wives wanted to ‘bonk’ him”

It was a good watch, with some insight, not really much.
It was more about The Likely Lads than anything else, and kept coming back to that quite often.
All in all, worth a watch....

I'm a huge fan of the Likely Lads too so I'll definitely give it a viewing on i-player
