on Galaxy, which was sort-of a precursor to Sky1. six episodes were made but only one broadcast before it was pulled for the outrage is caused.
funniest thing about it really, as can be seen there, was that the episode was broadcast after an episode of Dad's Army.
which was the 'rival' to Sky that had the 'squariel' and failed because Sky started about year earlier and snapped anyone who actually had the disposable income to pay for lots of shit TV.
According to Wikipedia Sky didn't swallow up BSB, it had to merge because they were both utterly fucked financially. I'd always assumed Sky did well.
by far the biggest flaw with it is that it isn't very funny
Though it couldn't last a whole series.
