Take one.

'The Big Bang Theory is one of the

most popular shows on television,

'loved by millions of people

all over the world.

'I've access to everything you don't

normally see that brings the show

'to life every week.'

As soon as I got onto the set,

I was very excited

and walked down the stairs...

'From the secrets of the wardrobe


I'll know. If this is missing

when you leave, you're in trouble.

'To watching the cast

record the show.'

Isn't it fun to learn things?

This is great.

Welcome to The Big Bang Theory,

Access All Areas.

Within reason. I can just go

waltzing into the ladies' loos

or ladies' rest rooms,

whatever they call them.

'Luckily for you, I am a long

allowed to waltz onto the set

'to meet the cast and I'll be

starting with the tough questions.'

Which character do you most enjoy

shooting scenes with?


That is Sophie's Choice.

Who makes you laugh the most

when you're doing scenes with them?

Who makes me laugh the most?

Favourite people to work with?

How can I answer that?

Are you trying to start

World War III?

I'm not going to answer that.

Kunal, diva...

Kunal, I don't like working

with at all.

Sure. Sure.

He, to be fair, said the same.

I'm sure he did.

Johnny Galecki, just outrageous.

Who makes me laugh the most?


You can say none of them.

I'm racking my brain. I can't even

remember their names.

Simon. Another diva.

I'm going to be diplomatic

and say... the cast.

Or none is probably better.

Or myself.

You should hear the things I say.

But I enjoy them all equally.

Not really. Is that my yearbook?

Mm-hm. "Dear Leonard,

You're really good at science.

"Maybe one day you'll come up

with a cure for being a dork."

OK, jokes aside,

what I really want to know

is how they go about making

the show each week.

We start on Wednesday mornings.

We do the table read, which is all

the actors, producers and writers.

We read the script and we laugh.



And that's usually when we find out

what's going to be happening,

so it's as much a surprise to us

as everyone else.

The writers take notes of what

seems to work well,

what didn't work, and they go off

to start rewriting.

Thursdays and Fridays we rehearse

more, get it on its feet

and we do run-throughs

for producers

and network and studio.

That's when rewrites come through,

so sometimes the script will change

by as much as a third,

and then we have a weekend

in between to learn our lines.

Monday we rehearse with cameras.

I prefer 20 minutes of rehearsal,

but these guys need hours.

But you are a consummate


It's what a lot of people

have been saying.

Tuesday night is live

audience taping.

Take a bow and they immediately hand

us a warm envelope

with the next morning's

script in it.

So, that's the actors' week

from start to finish,

but before they can do any

rehearsing or recording,

they're going to need a script.

But there is an original finals draft

Ghostbusters script

with actual slime stains.

Oh, you're right.

It's Ghostbusters II. Never mind.

Each and every episode of The Big

Bang Theory starts in this building

in the writers' room.

Led by creators Bill Prady

and Chuck Laurie,

the team have to conjure up new and

exciting ways of making us laugh.

Ooh, dark matter...

we'd better bring a flashlight.

'And if anyone knows the pressure

of writing a hit show,

'it is Chuck Lorre, who also created

Two And A Half Men.'

How do you keep coming up

with ideas that feel fresh

and interesting when you've

made 100 episodes of a show?
