Tuesday. BBC1 10.35pm THE cream of comic talent get a grilling from Alan Yentob as he tries to get to the bottom of why the traditional British sitcom is in decline, and how a new generation of comic creators are creating new angles to its traditional format.

But for Alan and many other comics he interviews - including Ricky Gervais, Stephen Merchant, Paul Whitehouse, Chris Langham, as well as the cast of the Peep Show and Green Wing - it hasn't died. They argue that it has just mutated into a new genre of sitcom.
