Three of a Kind was a British comedy sketch show starring comedians Tracey Ullman, Lenny Henry and David Copperfield. Three series were made by the BBC between 1981 and 1983. The show bolstered the careers of Ullman and Henry, as well as being an outlet for young writers including Rob Grant and Doug Naylor, Ian Hislop and Nick Revell. Ullman and Henry went on to greater success after the show, with Ullman initially launching a brief but successful pop career in 1983 before starring in the ITV sitcom Girls On Top in 1985 and then going on to a high profile career on American television.

My kind of music is a game show in the United Kingdom, produced by LWT for ITV from 8 February 1998 to 29 March 2002. The show's main theme, "My kind of people", where presenter Michael Barrymore sang some of the lyrics when appearing at the very start, was based on the same song by Robert Palmer released in 1991. Three teams of two people would test their musical knowledge against their chosen opponents and rivals, where the surviving team could go on to win £13,000 in the jackpot; later it was increased to £16,000 by the third series. Danny Foster made an appearance on the show, before he was chosen as one of the five members of the short-lived reality TV-formed group Hear'Say. When Barrymore's contract with LWT ended facing a scandal in 2001, they decided not to renew it, and My kind of music came to an end. The final series of six episodes transmitted from 10 February to 29 March 2002, though popular with most ITV regions and viewers, many rejected in showing the series - due to Barrymore's situation at the time. But none of the last six episodes were broadcast in Scotland, due to no time-slot in the schedule being available as Scottish Television and Grampian Television were using their slots for local programmes.
My kind of people is an ITV television show presented by British entertainer Michael Barrymore broadcast in 1995. Barrymore travelled around the country in his customised sports car visiting shopping centres, where amateurs performed on a stage for the programme unrehearsed. Some acts were simply shown performing together with the audience reaction, whereas others were interviewed by Barrymore or shown inter-dispersed with footage of Barrymore to the side of the stage engaged in foolish behaviour in order to get reactions from the audience. Often, Barrymore would join the act on stage and continue the tomfoolery. Notably, Susan Boyle performed on the show before she became famous worldwide for her Britain's got talent audition in 2009. Barrymore mocked her as she performed "I don't know how to love him" from Jesus Christ Superstar at the Olympia Mall in East Kilbride, lying on the stage beneath her and pretending to look up her skirt as she performed, attempting to sing with her during the end of the song and then staging a kiss with her. The clip was viewed several million times after Boyle rose to prominence, with many viewers criticising Barrymore for his rude and disrespectful behaviour, unfavourably comparing his notoriety since with Boyle's then-newfound fame and vocal ability.
