About videoGaiden

videoGaiden began in 2005 with a run of 6 x 10 minute episodes, the second series following a year later with 6 half hour shows. This third season sees the show switch primarily to the internet, with 18 x 15 minute (approx) episodes, and 3 TV specials.

These shows are complimented by the continual release of extra content on our website ( www.bbc.co.uk/videogaiden), as demonstrated in the first instance by the advent calendar. Check the calendar– content ranges from the whimsical to the downright unpleasant, dependant on your sensibilities of course.

Specially shot reviews for mobile phones will be going live next week, with further content being continually released until the end of March.

videoGaiden is written and presented by Robert Florence and Ryan Macleod, the brains behind the internet hit, Consolevania.

Robert is a Bafta nominated writer, his most recent sitcom, Legit debuted to healthy figures on BBC1 Scotland. He also has a second sitcom, starring Gregor Fisher and Billy Boyd, commissioned for BBC2 network.

Ryan Macleod has held a number of positions over the years. He didn’t rate any of them very highly.
