Bob Spiers, director of Absolutely Fabulous, on his 1992 television favourites: 'My comedy of the year? Westminster Live. My tragi-comedy? Either Black Wednesday or David Mellor. Rather reluctantly, Have I Got News for You, because the producers tried to stand on my toes at the British Comedy Awards. Clive Anderson Talks Back too. And, of course, Press Gang and Murder Most Horrid, which I directed but wouldn't have if they hadn't been funny.'
