BBC TV Licence advert - John Cleese at the pub - (1984) :60 (UK)

This advert is packed full of famous BBC faces. Can you spot them all?


John Cleese laments the BBC license bill and asks the landlord "what has the BBC ever done for us?", a question which the entire pub chimes in to answer. The humour lies in the fact that each answer comes from a BBC personality, everyone from morning news anchors to drama production frequents this pub apparently. I spotted John Snow, Jon Humphries, Frank Bough, news anchors Sue Lawley and Moira Stuart, Sir Patrick Moore playing space invaders, David Attenborough, Bob Geldof, Sir Michael Hordens, Ken Campbell and SHUT UP WOGAN.
