Young Methuselah

The BBC has commissioned a brand new drama for its winter schedule. The Adventures of Young Methuselah will air on Saturday night and will feature the exploits of the famous historical figure as he fights crime in ancient Mesopotamia.

"Yeah, well, he's the old guy from the bible, right?" said the BBC's Head of Barrel Scrapings, Harry Tit. "Thought so. Well, we wanted to make him relevant to today's young adult audience. We thought, hey, rather than have this crotchety old guy, we'll ditch the whole 'Victor Meldrew' thing, and follow his adventures when he's young and trendy and hot. We really wanted to tell this guy's story. Also, we've done everybody else, so it was either this or frickin' Ivanhoe."

The series begins in September, and the BBC promises thrills aplenty over its thirteen week run as we join Methuselah and his two sidekicks, Ghandi and Tufty the Squirrel, as they encounter ancient wizards, power-mad oligarchs, electric dinosaurs and futurist space cyborgs from the fifth dimension.
