SE01E02: “Black Gold”

When US network news legend Candida Coulter cascades into Karibu, flanked by her long-suffering cameraman and producer, the American invasion of the conflict-torn African country begins.

“Candida Coulter” (hah!) is played by Ruby Wax.

If you’d like to see the teaser and bonus videos, look no further than the BBC’s channel on Youtube:

Who is David Bradburn?

You can see more videos on

The British Comedy Guide

but once again only for residents of the UK, due to the BBC’s pointless “copyright restrictions”.


Christopher Timothy, who plays “Pa Joad” in “The Grapes of Wrath”, gave an interview to SPIRIT FM, talking about his role, the relationship between Pa Joand and his eldest son Tom (Damian O’Hare), the director, the set etc. The perfect introduction for those who haven’t read the book yet and want to know what it’s all about.
