Episode 3: Big Close Up

Duration: 30 minutes

First broadcast: on CBBC ChannelLatest broadcast: on BBC Two England

Series set in the imagined world inside a games console from the makers of Sorry I've Got No Head, following a group of computer game characters on and off screen as they go about their daily lives.

Each of the characters comes from different gaming genres, from a questing elf to a zombie-battling waitress, as well as a marsupial hybrid who collects apples, a space marine, a glamorous legend hunter and Kiki Nova, an incredibly upbeat and enthusiastic dance star. After each episode, viewers can go to the CBBC website and find the same characters starring in an arcade suite of six games, featuring graphics and sound bites from the show.

Claireparker gets into difficulty when she has to learn a cut scene in her game. Luckily Aethelwynne fancies himself as a cutting-edge director and is immediately on hand to help coach her in the subtle art of acting. Meanwhile, Rex is struggling to pass his fruit proficiency test, which is interrupted when Kiki sneaks a bite of some forbidden fruit and becomes massive. Show less
