Rhod Gilbert’s Work Experience

10:00pm Wednesday 19 December on BBC TWO

Comedian Rhod Gilbert’s final outing of this series sees him pounding the beat as he takes on duties as a policeman.

The training alone is terrifying for Rhod, as he squares up to a police dog trained to bring down a criminal with its mouth, rides an unruly police horse and learns to rely on his riot shield for protection.

As he prepares for a big day policing the Wales v Italy Six Nations clash in Cardiff, Rhod tries out his police manner in a close encounter with those breaching traffic laws.

He feels the training has tweaked his criminal antenna enough to catch people in the act. But can he retain his police officer credibility when all around him are asking for autographs?

Ep 4/4

10:00pm Thursday 6 December on BBC TWO

Comedian Rhod Gilbert ignores the advice of never to work with children and animals in order to learn the ropes as a zoo keeper in his next instalment of Rhod Gilbert’s Work Experience.

He travels to the Welsh Mountain Zoo in Colwyn Bay to find that talking to the animals isn’t the problem – it’s getting them to talk back that was Doctor Dolittle’s forte.

Armed with a foolproof escape plan if he encounters the most dangerous creatures, and the technology of a whistle to raise any alarm, Rhod sets about his duties.

In between the mucking out, feeding a tiger and setting a food treasure hunt for bears, he’s roped into staging some shows with sea lion Cousteau, 11 lookalike chimps and a posse of penguins. But can Rhod pep-talk the penguins into heeding the showbiz mantra that the show must go on?
