Series 1 Summary

It's the end of an era: the decade that no one can pronounce is coming to an end and Channel 4 celebrates by finding the greatest music and TV programmes of the past ten years.

Channel 4 has conducted a survey with the leading TV critics and industry figures, and asked the public in a YouGov national poll, to tell us what they think was the their favourite music and TV of the decade. Featuring some of the biggest names in TV and music, these two programmes reveal the 20 best shows and songs that genuinely represent the character of the last ten years.

Evergreen by Will Young is the biggest selling single of the decade, but have you voted it as one of the tracks of the decade? Only Fools and Horses had the biggest ratings of any comedy but has it made it into the 21st century as the nation's choice?

And most importantly have we just lived through a golden age of TV and music or made it through a cultural desert? What was the Noughties all about?
