I am looking for a sketch that has a very long introduction with voiceover. It starts off with a man leaving a building, accompanied by the VO telling us who he is. Shortly thereafter he enters another building and is not seen again, so it turns out that he is in fact not the subject of the story, but just the first in a long line of links, as in "and it was this man who...", "and it was in this building..." etc. etc. which eventually leads us to the sketch itself.

A bit vague, I know, but I'm sure the fine people on this forum will be able to identify it.

cheers!

It sounds like the opening of the "Science Fiction sketch" aka "Man Turns Into A Scotsman". It starts by following Mr. and Mrs. Brainsample and then just as quickly pans of them with the remark "So let's forget about them and follow instead the destiny of this man..." who promptly turns into a Scotsman - they weren't in a building though, they were on a railway station. It's from Season 1, episode 7 (script here)

thanks CF, but I'm afraid that's not the one. The concept is the same, but the whole misdirections bit goes on for much much longer in the one I'm looking for.

Found it! I forgot how it actually starts, but nevertheless - it's "Up Your Pavement" from "The Light Entertainment Wars"
