I thought the recent supporting documentaries for the BBC History Plays season (for example with Derek Jacobi and Trevor Nunn) were really poor.
One show I can warmly recommend if you want a good laugh is "Inside The Actor's Studio", not sure if they show it somewhere on Sky but you can see it in its full glory in USA - its basic premise is that any words uttered by an actor on any topic at all should be treated with the same reverence and respect as was afforded to Moses when he came back with the tablets. For fawning sycophancy it is matchless.

Yes, the Ferrell parody was perfect, right down to the gigantic stack of (unused) prompt cards Lipton arms himself with (you can find the clip on YouTube I think). I think the Lipton show is still going, I saw an excellent one fairly recently with Antony Hopkins peddling his CD of songs, or was it his paintings ? One of his secondary activities that his wife tells him he is a genius at anyway, Lipton was in awe at such wide-ranging talent.

Depends how you look at it. My stage love of Olivia Colman now means I will watch everything that I see she is performing in.
Do the two genres cross over? Yeah for me in many ways they do
