PEOPLE JUST DO NOTHING

Welcome to KURUPT FM, ‘the second most popular pirate radio station in West London’. Led by the delusional MC Grindah and his equally hapless sidekick DJ Beats, Kurupt FM are on a mission to go global. Together with the drug-impaired Steves and the technical support of dodgy self-proclaimed ‘entrepreneur’ Chabuddy G, they seek to make their dream of worldwide fame a reality.

People Just Do Nothing is a Bafta-winning mockumentary. All five series available on BBC iPlayer.
