People Like Us is a British comedy programme, a spoof on-location documentary (or mockumentary) written by John Morton, and starring Chris Langham as Roy Mallard, an inept interviewer. Originally a radio show for BBC Radio 4 in three series from 1995 to 1997, it was made into a television series for BBC Two between September 1999 and June 2000.
On the radio
Each episode features the affable, bumbling Roy Mallard following a typical day in the lives of one or more representatives of a particular career or lifestyle. This he does in his own, inimitable manner. A comedy of wordplay and misunderstanding, People Like Us could be seen as a metaphor for life, in that, while the protagonist is clearly an idiot, everyone else involved is a bigger idiot - Mallard's questions are usually completely sensible, yet they are inexplicably misinterpreted.
Mallard: "I expect you can remember this farm without a tractor?"
Aged farmhand: "Oh, I got a good memory – I don't need a tractor."
