24 Hour Parcel People


Well after several months of waiting we will finally get to see the BBC show we contributed to last summer. 

Its on BBC2 at 9pm, and will no doubt be on BBC i-player shortly afterwards.

Gaz and Mark :)

  2. "a fascinating, cautionary tale"?!? Oh my! Was able to watch the clip with the lady who had a closet full of outfits for her little dogs. Thought only Americans did stuff like that.

    Unfortunately episodes not available for viewing in the US without a proxy UK IP address. Time to turn on the computer nerd part of my brain again.

    1. It's what happened with City Link (the focus of the documentary) since filming summer of last year Gail, it went into administration last Christmas. Poignant ending...

      But hopefully you'll still get a way to see it!

  3. I enjoyed the earlier clip - it's too bad BBC America never airs shows like this.

  6. I watched the programme and thought the names Mark and Gaz rang a bell. I have seen your comments on Rusty Duck. You both had staring roles, well done, and I thought that your garden was fabulous.

  10. I enjoyed your screen debut guys but it's so sad that the lovely guy who delivered your box of preciousness will now probably be jobless :(

    1. Thanks Anna, glad to hear that! Shame what happened to City Link though, what could have been a cheerful documentary became poignant and elegiac. Some good news that DPD and Royal Mail did take on some of the ex employees.

  11. Don't know what happened to my comment. 2nd attempt.

    To watch this episode outside the UK, install the Hola Better Internet extension in Google Chrome, then select the UK from the list of countries. Now go to the BBC iPlayer page for 24-Hour Parcel People and you're ready to go.
