Victoria Wood’s Secret List features more than twenty sketches from her vast array of work. The skits – chosen by Victoria herself – had been discovered on a list in one of her personal notebooks after her untimely death.
With a career spanning more than 40 years and crossing every possible genre, Victoria has a back catalogue that’s bulging with sublime comedy moments, and Victoria Wood’s Secret List promises viewers a unique opportunity to see the very best bits of Victoria’s work that she loved the most.
Both programmes will also feature previously unseen insights into Victoria’s life, including clips from her own personal archive. They will also include contributions from a number of well-known faces who will discuss her broad catalogue of award-winning comedy. Broadcast details will be announced in due course with the series being produced for BBC Two by Phil McIntyre Television.
“We are thrilled that the BBC have chosen to honour Victoria with this two-part special. Victoria had planned to make a whacking great compilation of her work but sadly, never got around to it. The list of sketches discovered after she died are all classic Victoria Wood comedy gold, and together with previously unseen footage, photos and scripts from her personal archive, these two unique shows will be a huge treat for Victoria’s fans.” – Lindsay Jex, Series Producer for Phil McIntyre TV
