100 Greatest TV Treats of 2003 (2003)

Film details

Synopsis

Channel 4 takes a look back at the 100 best bits from 2003, from groundbreaking documentaries and grand sporting occasions to the salacious soap plots and dramas that had the great British public glued to their TV sets. The 100 Greatest TV Treats Of 2003 is a celebration of all the best moments caught on camera over the last twelve months. The year 2003 saw David Beckham take his sarong to Spain and Dirty Den come back from the dead. Phil Tufnell was crowned King of the Jungle while Major Charles Ingram looks back on how he lost a million pounds quicker than Chris Tarrant could say "Do you want to phone a friend?" The programme salutes the achievements of the Austrian daredevil who proved man could fly by crossing the channel in under 15 minutes, and the American magician who proved man could sit in a glass box and go nowhere for over a month. Not to mention Derren Brown's Russian Roulette, Tatu's Russian duet and the story of the monkey who thinks he's a man. From warring families in Wife Swap (a still shell-shocked Emma and Colin Spry recount their experiences), to Simon Cowell's Pop Idol put-downs via the cuddly Creature Comforts , the programme counts down from 100 to one and reveals the very best moment from 2003.
