It originally ran for three seasons plus three subsequent Christmas specials, and was produced by Optomen Television for the BBC.

The programme was credited with inspiring men to cook due to Oliver's "blokey" approach. Each episode was notionally based around a social situation or event in Oliver's life, such as a hen night or babysitting his cousins.
