The Ministry of Curious Stuff (CBBC 2012, Vic Reeves) 

Vic Reeves invites CBBC viewers to join him in the Ministry of Curious Stuff, a fantastical depository of information staffed by Vic and his team of inquisitive fact-finders, including his dim-witted assistant, Captain Length-Width – a man who takes stupidity to impressive new levels.

As the ringmaster of this magical, weird and unpredictable world, Vic’s mission is to provide answers to questions posed by CBBC viewers – no matter how weird or wonderful those questions may be.
