Victoria Wood Pop Art
Stylish pop art illustration of Victoria Wood, the legendary Acorn Antiques creator and actress, who portrayed Miss Berta in her soap spoof which featured in “Victoria Wood as Seen on TV”.

From the talent show “New Faces” through to segments on “That’s Life”, Victoria Wood became known throughout the 1970s for her songs and television plays, including “Talent”, “Nearly A Happy Ending”, and “Happy Since I Met You”.

The plays led to her first sketch show with Julie Walters called, appropriately, “Wood & Walters”, but it was the seminal BBC series “Victoria Wood As Seen on TV” that was to capture the hearts of viewers.

The often-quoted BAFTA-winning show gave birth to Patricia Routledge’s Kitty, very much a precursor to Hyacinth Bucket of “Keeping Up Appearances” and the classic soap-spoof Acorn Antiques.

The wonky sets, shaky camerawork, random plots, missed cues, and fluffed lines perfectly lampooned low-budget TV such as Crossroads.

Set in “Manchesterford”, the iconic “Acorn Antiques” characters of Miss Babs, Miss Berta, & Mrs Overall debuted on BBC Two as part of the ground-breaking comedy series “Victoria Wood as Seen on TV”.

The impact of the soap-parody lasted beyond the original two series, spawning a mock-documentary about the life of the Mrs Overall actress Bo Beaumont during the 1987 Christmas special, Mrs Overall’s revival in “The Mall” in 1992, and an award-winning West End musical in 2005.

As well as sell-out stand-up tours, Victoria Wood continued to write for television with lauded projects including “Pat & Margaret”, and “Dinnerladies”, going on to win a pair of BAFTAs for her performance and script for “Housewife, 49”.

A much missed talent whose unique outlook still continues to influence comedy to this day, her work will always bring joy to those of us who enjoy rewatching her classic productions, and to those who have the pleasure of discovering it anew.
