Channel 4 unveils a winter schedule dominated by drama

Channel 4 is to chart the complicated relationship between the comedians Peter Cook and Dudley Moore as part of a winter schedule dominated by drama.

The film, entitled Not Only But Always (pictured), will be accompanied by a one-off drama about the late government scientist Dr David Kelly and a piece from The Full Monty writer, Simon Beaufoy, entitled Yasmin, about a young westernised Muslim woman forced to re-evaluate her faith after 11 September.

The channel will also welcome back the dramas Shameless and No Angels, as well as Celebrity Big Brother. Jimmy Carr will host a comedy show entitled The Friday Night Project, while Jamie Oliver returns to the channel in Jamie's School Dinners, in which he will attempt to get the nation's dinner ladies to rethink their menus.
