videoGaiden launches on Saturday December 1st– this very weekend– with the first online show, featuring the usual mix of sketch comedy and games journalism.

Also debuting will be the inaugural videoGaiden advent calendar– complete with 25 doors concealing special bits of Christmas‘magic’.

Before that though, our YouTube area is playing host to some rather expertly prepared promos, and possibly the world’s greatest EPK. Or not, as the case may be. These can be found at www.youtube.com/videogaiden


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 will be 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. Further content scheduled for release includes exclusive‘mobisodes’ and audio downloads.

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 commissioned for BBC2 network.

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