First shown in 1997. Chris Morris turns his laser eye to the subject of crime. Highlights include shocking revelations of how elephants are being used to disperse rioters, and Vanessa Feltz's message...
Alan Partridge a failed television presenter whose previous exploits had featured in the chat-show parody Knowing Me, Knowing You with Alan Partridge, and who is now presenting a programed on local radio in Norwich.
After publishing a rant about 'idiots' - frantically hip, ignorant scenesters - Dan Ashcroft finds these same people embracing him as his idol and his nerves constantly tested by his biggest fan, moronic scene personality Nathan Barley.
This parody series is an unearthed 80s horror/drama, complete with poor production values, awful dialogue and hilarious violence. The series is set in a Hospital in Romford, which is situated over the gates of Hell.
When the show first aired in 1997, some of the more controversial sketches were cut on the orders of the then-head of Channel 4 programming Michael Grade, most notably a piece concerning a musical based on the life of and starring the serial killer Peter Sutcliffe. The edition of the show in which the sketch would have featured was allegedly broadcast containing a onscreen subliminal message lasting 1/25 of a second that read "Grade is a cunt". The series was repeated in 2001 with the Sutcliffe sketch and some other material shown uncut, and with the subliminal message removed. See more »
More Jokes, One Liners, Insanity, Nonsense, Scathing Insight, Mockery, Satire, Offence, and Total Wrongness wrapped up in a Bitesize of 30 minutes than anything that has ever been previously created in the history of time and space.
Pushing the boundaries of Televisual Entertainment above and Beyond anything anyone would ever have expected. They actually had a question raised in Parliament about "Cake"! The endless stream of "Celebs" quoting ridiculous statements about the abuse of "Cake".
Probably my favourite part of this show is the visual graphic and statistics they employ. Wonderful!
