BBC3 unveils highlights for final night on-air

Top Gear, Don't Tell The Bride, Gavin & Stacey and Siblings will be among the shows leading BBC3's TV swansong as the channel makes the move online on Tuesday 16th February 2016, Radio Times reports.


BBC3's last night of programming will open with the first episode of Top Gear's 16th series, which sees Jeremy Clarkson submitting "the Skoda Yeti to a remarkably thorough road test".

Then it's straight over to Las Vegas for a Don't Tell The Bride extravaganza, followed by back-to-back British "comedies" with Gavin & Stacey, Little Britain and Bad Education* punctuated only by the evening's scheduled EastEnders repeat.

The nightly Albert Square recap will move to W (the new name for UKTV's Watch) from Thursday 18th February 2016 onwards.

Family Guy and American Dad, two of the best shows on the whole BBC network, will take viewers into the early hours, when The Mighty Boosh, Cuckoo, Siblings, Josh and Some Girls will take the graveyard shift, before Gavin & Stacey returns to take the honour of being the last programme broadcast on BBC3 on TV.

Wednesday 17th Februrary 2016 will mark the first day in what the BBC hopes will be a bright future for the channel online, with a host of programming – including Doctor Who spin-off Class – scheduled for 2016 and beyond.

BBC boss Tony Hall is rather excited about it, commenting that the channel feels like a "start-up" at a recent launch event:
"I was with the team briefly last week... and the atmosphere is really magic. It's exciting. It feels a bit like a start up. I love the feeling of going and being with Damian [Kavanagh, BBC3 controller]'s team. It feels creative, energetic and mischievous as well, just as it should be."

* The exception, Bad Education is actually a little funny and watchable.

"Fun House" Theme Song

It's Wacky, it's fun, it's Cr-a-a-a-zy, it's outrageous, it's the Fun House theme tune!:



The British version of Fun House aired on CITV from 1989-99. The game show was hosted by Pat Sharp along with the twin cheerleaders Melanie and Martina Grant, and Gary King as the announcer.

Theme song lyrics to the UK version of Fun House, via Game Shows Wiki:

It's Wacky!
It's Fun!
It's Cr-a-a-a-zy!
It's outrageous!
Fun House,
It's a whole lot of fun,
Prizes to be won!
It's a real crazy show where anything can go!
Fun House,
It's a quiz,
It's a race,
It's a real wacky place!
Use your body and your brain!
If you wanna play the game!
