Leigh Francis teaches us a brief history of British television, leading up to the launch of Nickelodeon UK, in this classic Nickelodeon UK short from 1999!:



Nickelodeon UK's "Paid For By Grown-Ups, Made Just For Kids" interstitial features many Nick favourites, including Matt Brown, Lisa Brockwell (Lisa B.), Mounya Khamlichi, Simon Amstell, Bogey, CatDog, Get Up! and Sabrina the Teenage Witch, and features comedian Leigh Francis (aka Keith Lemon) in one of his earliest TV roles! The short is a parody of BBC's "Small People" trailer.
