Mr Bean
UK, ITV (Tiger Television for Thames), Sitcom, Colour, 1990
Starring: Rowan Atkinson, Rudolph Walker, Howard Goodall

Mr Bean sits an exam and is blissfully happy until, too late, he realises that he has studied the wrong maths equations; tries to change into his swimming trunks at the beach without anyone seeing his bits; and tries to stifle a sneeze in church.

So entered a new TV hero on New Year's Day 1990. The episode collected three major prizes at the Montreux TV Festival, including the prestigious Golden Rose.

Researched and written by Mark Lewisohn.
