"O Alien" on TV's Believe It Or Not
30 June 2009 | by (Edinburgh, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A clip, showing the aforementioned pendulous breasts, was shown on "TV's Believe It Or Not" on BBC 4 on Tuesday 30th June 2009. Sean Lock was the host of this hilarious look at wacky TV programmes through the years. Sean describes the idea for this programme as a bit crazy and something that you might have thought about after a night in the pub with your friends!

It looks as weird as the previous comment suggests with a pseudo-hippie voice-over and it all seems a bit drug-induced. The female voice tries to look at a tree in a different way.

I have no idea where one can get a hold of this but if anyone else has the full video for the 40 Minutes programme please let me know. It should be an interesting view of the alternative side of 80s culture and television.
