BBC to remake the classic 1979 Election Special.


The atmosphere was electric. Probably all the nylon.

Following the successful remake of 1970’s classics such as The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin, Poldark and a militant left wing Labour Party, the BBC has announced that it is to reboot the 1979 BBC Election special as a 10 part serial.

“It was a seminal moment in British Television” said a weird looking hipster type sporting a BBC producer’s badge. “The atmosphere was electric. Although that was probably all the nylon.”

“Since we only cater for under 35’s these days, now is a great time to remake this classic TV moment for a whole new audience”.

The ubiquitous BBC pet and token lesbian Clare Balding has been cast as the lead role of David Dimbleby, with the supporting roles of Cliff Mitchelmore and Robin Day to be played by the ubiquitous BBC pet and token lesbian, Clare Balding.

The role of Margaret Thatcher will be played by Dermot O’Leary.

With excitement mounting for the release of the Dad’s Army movie and impending winter power cuts, BBC Director General Tony Hall announced a whole season of complementary 70’s remakes such as the comedy hit ‘Love Thy Neighbour’ starring Katie Hopkins, Top of the Pops with Ian Huntley, and the Vietnam War, starring Syria.
