The King Is Dead

The Chief of Police has kicked the bucket, the President has been assassinated and the King is dead! So, who do you turn to?

Each week on The King Is Dead a well-known public figure is hypothetically bumped off. It's down to the comedic interview panel, led by Simon Bird, to scour the Great British celebrity pool for a top-notch replacement. Three celebrities compete in this unique and vigorous interview process in a bid to prove they are the best applicant for the available job.

Young Talent Of The Year 2010

Young Talent Of The Year 2010

The show that celebrates the unsung heroes of Britain is back. Young Talent Of The Year 2010 puts the spotlight on the dedicated young professionals of Britain who have devoted years to perfecting their craft.

Once again the series is looking to see who can cut it as the country's Young Hairdresser of the Year and who can slaughter the competition to take the title of Young Butcher. And three new categories seek the brightest young talents from the worlds of beauticians, plumbers and fishmongers.

George Lamb returns to preside over the action, as each of the five episodes tackles an individual profession. Joining George each time are two respected judges from each profession to offer their expert opinion.

In each episode the four finalists, selected from auditions across the UK, face a series of tough challenges designed to push their professional skills to the limit. As the successive tasks grow in difficulty and the pressure increases, the contestants' every move is scrutinised by the expert judges as they look to decide who has the skill and individuality to beat off the competition. At the end of each episode the judges must decide who is worthy of the title of BBC Three's Young … Of The Year 2010.
