Room 101

28 Conversations

The BBC TV show. Article under construction.

Room 101 was the room in George Orwell's 1984 which contained "the worst thing in the world". The BBC1 have taken this concept and turned it into a TV show in which various celebreties talk about things that they hate.

The show was originally hosted by Nick Hancock and is currently hosted by Paul Merton

Memorable guests have included Will Self, Nick Hancock (or PM's first show), and Stephen Fry

H2G2 Room 101

Post suggestions to the coversations to this forum and I'll consider adding them to the H2G2 room 1012

Obviously anything banished to room 101 can never escape and so must never be discussed on H2G2 again

Suggestions to consign the moderators to room 101 will be regarded as a vicious and unprovoked attack on people doing their best at a difficult job3.

  • 1 Interestingly the origins of Room 101 was at the BBC anyway. Room 101 was the room of a senior BBC program editor who often rejected/edited Orwell's work. Orwell to his (literary) revenge by making the editors room be an evil place.2All Zathras's decisions are final, even when he changes them3 Doesn't mean they won't go in though 4With the possible exception of Terry Wogan who is just on the brink because the denizens of the BOF inn would probably be lost without him.
