Reg Prescott (DIY expert) writes: 'Hello viewers! I've just perfected the recipe for the ultimate funny TV show. First, take a pinch of Wilma Wacky , then a level cupful of Mrs Cheeky and stir in a 'boy of the old brigade'.
Add this to the mixing bowl containing Marillion and blend firmly together until it begins to bubble. Adjust your - er - seasonings, add a splash of Mrs Mirth and, being careful not to burn yourself on the comedy oven, bake for 30 minutes and turn out on to the Lionel Blair rack. There you have it - your very own Cuddly Ken TV Show!' Join Reg, Banzai Davlo , the Bronte Sisters and Queen Victoria for another fab show!

Later this month Britain's 100,000 miners will vote on the future direction of their leadership and in particular on Arthur Scargill. It's the first opportunity since the bitter year-long coal strike in 1984 for miners to express support or condemnation for their charismatic president. Panorama investigates who and what made Arthur Scargill, his record as union leader and what would be the impact of his re-election.
Steve Bradshaw has been on the campaign trail, talks to miners at the coalface and examines the extraordinary influence Arthur Scargill still exerts over the NUM.
