What happens when a great character actor plays a character-less character…? Well, that’s what Rich, Abi and Jamie are here to find out this week with one of Peter Seller’s final films ‘Being There’.

Highlights include: enigmatic garden metaphors, an awkward sex scene and Rich having a bit of a problem with ‘that’ ending. Oh, and of course, Basketball Jones.
