Our final list of shows is made up of your suggestions, our writers' favourites and some shows that were so popular we couldn't leave them out.
Family Guy and other US imports were excluded on the grounds that the Beeb can't really take credit for them (although we are grateful they show them). Meanwhile, we were willing to include shows such as Liquid News and Two Pints of Lager, because they are so entwined in the channel's history, even if they did actually start off elsewhere (BBC Choice and BBC Two).
What do you think is the channel's greatest ever show? Vote in our poll:
