Summary: Before and after Father Ted, Graham Linehan and Arthur Matthews had been sketch show writers; contribruting to the likes of Spitting Image, The Day Today and the Friday and Saturday Night Armistice. Big Train picked up on the surrealism found in their earlier work. From the World Stare-Out Championship to herds of wild jockeys being hunted by The Artist Formerly Known as Prince, from showjumping firefighters to the most erratic 100m runner ever seen, the show broke new ground, was much imitated and, arguably, launched the careers of Simon Pegg, Catherine Tate, Mark Heap and Amelia Bullmore.
