Behind the Scenes

This section aims to deal with various bits and bobs that you never knew about the series. If there is anything that you would like to see in this section, then please drop me a line.

Interviews

Lee Pressman and Grant Cathro talk about how T-Bag was developed, the difficulties of running on a tight budget in a tiny studio and the tenth series that never happened.

Raymond Childe talks about life as a costume designer for T-Bag, and the costumes he designed for the show.

Georgina Hale Talks about how she first became an actor, her experience as T-Bag, and what she will be doing next.

The T-Room on Location

 
This is the bit where I travel all the way to London from the T-Room to find locations where T-Bag was filmed (there were only two, so this isn't as demanding as it sounds).

The Curiosity Shop - You may recall that the very first sequence of the T-Bag series was filmed at a small shop somewhere in London. This shop was to become Thomas's (T-Shirt's) Granddad's shop. I have found and travelled to this shop, and hopefully put some interesting bits together for the real T-Bag anoraks amongst us! Here's an anorak fact for you - did you know that the outside of this shop was used for "Little Britain"? It featured at the very beginning of the "Pirate Memory Game" sketch (series 1, episode 7, sketch 2).

Teddington Studios - The entire series (apart from the very first scene of the very first series) was filmed at what was then the Thames Television studios at Teddington Lock. These are now utility studios that can be hired for major TV productions. I have been lucky enough to have a private tour of these studios for the T-Room, and this can be found in this section.
