Harry Hill is bringing a new show about television history to BBC Two, humbly promising fans that "Watching TV will never be the same again."

Harry Hill's World of TV is a six-part series in which Hill will raid the archives to give his inimitable take on soaps, medical dramas, police dramas, home improvement shows, historical documentaries and cookery programmes, helpfully explaining the conventions of each genre along the way. 

"It's about time someone blew the whistle on how these TV shows are put together and it looks like I'm the man for the job," he said.

"Watching TV will never be the same again! I predict this series of programmes will be required viewing for all students of TV. We're talking TV landmark… jus' sayin'."

Harry Hill's World of TV will debut on BBC Two later this year.
