Each week the three climbed aboard and promptly fell off their customised bicycle for three (the 'Trandem') before remounting to pedal off to their task.

Not The Nine O'Clock
Not The Nine O'Clock News was a satirical show broadcast on BBC2 (UK) from 1979 to 1982.

The series ended in 1982, partly due to the various cast members wanting to pursue their own projects instead.

Inside No. 9
Inside No. 9 invites viewers into six very different No. 9s, where the ordinary and mundane rub shoulders with the extraordinary and macabre. From a grand country house where a game of 'sardines' leads to some chilling revelations in a wardrobe; to a very oddly haunted house; to a blood-soaked actor's dressing room in London's West End; to the flat of an apparently happy primary school teacher who becomes the victim of a good deed; these unpredictable tales feature high comedy and claustrophobic horror by turns.
Follow the adventures of Professor Ian Hood, Special Advisor to the government's Joint Sciences Committee, who troubleshoots threats stemming from or targeting "scientific endeavour." He is joined by Rachel Young, a Special Branch operative who acts primarily as his bodyguard, as Hood has made powerful enemies through his work.
