The BBC has announced it will honour the much-missed comedian Victoria Wood and her contribution to comedy through the two part-series Victoria Wood’s Secret List, a hand-picked countdown of Victoria's personal favourite moments from her critically acclaimed television shows, to be broadcast on BBC Two later this year.
Victoria Wood's Secret List: What's it about?
Revealing some details, the BBC has shared the programmes will feature more than 20 sketches from Victoria's vast array of work. The sketches - chosen by Victoria herself - were discovered on a list in one of her personal notebooks after her untimely death.
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.
Jo Wallace, Acting Controller Entertainment Commissioning at the BBC, said: “Victoria Wood was without question one of the most brilliantly talented and fantastically funny comedians of our generation. It is an absolute honour to be able to share with viewers her personally selected favourite moments and lots more besides in this very special trip down memory lane.”
Lindsay Jex, Series Producer for Phil McIntyre TV added: “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."
Broadcast details will be announced in due course.
