PS (Sun am): I've just received an email about The Sitcom Trials which begins "I only stumbled across this from a brief remark on "The One Show" [BBC 1, Friday Oct 14] about the current competition, which I realise has already been closed for entries."
The One Show? Did the Sitcom Trials get mentioned on The One Show? By whom? I must know more!
