The most popular British comedy sketch in Germany – and you probably won’t have heard of it


Dinner for One

It’s called Dinner for One (oder Der 90 Geburtstag), is the most repeated TV programme ever, yet has never aired on British television since it was made in 1963. But every New Year, half the German population sits down to watch it (and you can, too, by clicking on the picture).

Next time I’m in Berlin, I’ll have to try “The same procedure as every year, James,” and see what happens. Until then, Glückliches Neues Jahr Deutschland!
