Videos and DVDs
British comedy in which a rookie music manager attempts to find success without losing sight of what's really important. Dixie (Jonny Owen) is a South Wales postman who is crazy about music. After discovering a band called The Premature Congratulations on YouTube he tracks them down and proposes that he become their manager. With the support of his partner Michelle (Vicky McClure), Dixie works tirelessly, promoting the band and organising gigs for no pay, but as they start finding success, The Premature Congratulations only become more arrogant and there is a good possibility they will drop their manager. Will Dixie stay in the music business or go back to simply enjoying music as a fan? The cast also includes Martin Freeman, Matt Berry and Michael Smiley.
