People Like Us is a British radio and TV comedy programme, a spoof on-location documentary (or mockumentary) written by John Morton, and starring Chris Langham as Roy Mallard, an inept interviewer. Originally a radio show for BBC Radio 4 in three series from 1995 to 1997, it was made into a television series for BBC Two that was broadcast from September 1999 to June 2001.

"To see one of his programmes is to be reminded why you got into broadcasting in the first place"
Peel never made an appearance in the series, except for promoting the trailer of the programme.
