Big excitement at Poke towers as we learn that Alan Partridge will be revealing places that have made him the man he is today with an hour-long special on Sky Atlantic tonight at 9pm.
From the Riverside Leisure Centre and his local newsagent to the luscious expanse of Thetford Forest, Alan explores the key landmarks and natural beauty spots that have led some people to call Norfolk the ‘Wales of the east’.
We will learn that Norwich boasts more than 20 car dealerships, as well as some of the most sensible parking regulations in the country – facts that really make the city a haven for motorists like Alan.
What’s more, his daily commute to North Norfolk Digital Radio is a mere ten minutes by car, something Londoners could only dream of. Alan’s tour, of course, includes his place of work which, at 800 square feet, ‘is bigger than most good quality dentists’.
Also taking in the church where he was christened, the local dry ski slope and the city’s historic market ‘where people come from far and wide to buy monkey hats and tat.’
A Baby Cow production for Sky Atlantic.
