Quote from: mothman on January 11, 2022, 10:35:34 PMMind you, I've never been able to find this, the post with which I started the "Hazy Television Memories, Redux" thread in 2014:Date: uncertain. Possibly 1990s. A short TV sketch featuring a newsreader finishing up the news. He bids the audience good night, then taps his keyboard (as if to log out). There's a ping, the front of his (CRT) monitor swings open and he takes out a plate with his dinner on, nice and warm.
Quote from: The Giggling Bean on January 13, 2022, 10:44:00 AMThere was a short film, possibly on The Horror Channel, years and years ago. Spoilered due to suicide reference...Spoiler alertit was 1 actress facing the camera for an audition. A voice off camera told her to step up on a chair and put a noose around her neck. She did so but started to get suspicious and kept asking if it was safe. The voice just kept repeating the same instructions. She put the noose around her then the voice said "jump". She began questioning again but the voice just repeated itself. Ultimately she jumped and, as I'm sure you've guessed, they'd made her hang herself[close]It must have been about 5/10 years ago I saw it but it really stuck with me. Never saw it again though.I also remember an alternative title sequence for the 1992 episodic broadcast of "The Further Adventures of Billy The Fish" on Channel 4. The last time I saw this was around 2007/2008 on YouTube. It got took down shortly after on a copyright claim. I'd love to see that again. Some kind soul uploaded an off air episode of Roger Mellie from Christmas 92 last week. That brought back so many memories.
Quote from: KennyMonster on January 14, 2022, 11:58:38 AMIn autumn 1996 BBc2 ran a comedy show, maybe only a pilot got aired, it was a spoof news show.I never saw anything apart from trailers but remember reading about it on internet userne (?) groups and they said it was a cheap TDT knock off.Pretty sure that computer screen/microwave gag was in the trailer, it sounds familiar.
Quote from: non capisco on January 14, 2022, 01:33:28 AMI've worked tirelessly night and day to try and find this ostrich for you to no avail and now you throw in something else. Unbelievable.
Quote from: Glebe on January 14, 2022, 11:41:40 PMMaybe there was a programme with an ostrich in a bath?
Quote from: Artie Fufkin on January 14, 2022, 04:50:13 PMArrggh. Fucksticks! I remember that.It couldn't have been Horror Channel if I've seen it. Unless it subsequently went to a different channel....

Quote from: Replies From View on January 14, 2022, 01:18:06 AMOne has occurred to me just now, quite out of nowhere but this is one that I have thought about fleetingly quite a lot over the years but never written down.Late 80s I'd guess - it's a scene of some children shovelling bank notes into a furnace accompanied by Badfinger's Come and Get It. Pretty sure it was probably an episode of Jim'll Fix It.It was only when the Beatles Anthology CDs came out years later that I heard Paul's demo of Come and Get It, so could place the song from the scene in my memory.In particular the lyric about the money "going fast". I remember hearing it as "going bad" and thinking as a child that the money was going bad somehow, and that's why they were shovelling it into the furnace.
Quote from: Bad Ambassador on March 02, 2022, 09:01:12 PMYou're sure you're not misremembering part of The Magic Christian?
Quote from: Swift on March 09, 2022, 10:51:55 PMAn Australian show which aired on Channel 4 (I believe) in the late 90s. It was a one off show (or at least I only remember the one episode) about plastic surgery/boob jobs.Any ideas?
Quote from: Sonny_Jim on March 10, 2022, 01:22:37 AMHere's one that I've never been able to Google:Aired in the 90s late night on Channel 4, 70s cop show spoof that's setup like Scooby doo, where the cast drive around in a sweet ass van. Only character I can remember was called 'Phones' and was a bearded mute guy who always wore headphones.
Quote from: Magnum Valentino on March 10, 2022, 02:48:46 PMStill have a very clear memory of a buxom UK goffic talking about piercings at a time when that would still have been shocking (must be 2000, 2001 and on one of the terrestrial channels) and checking with the interviewer if it was OK to "just get my baps out", which it WAS! Would have been late night, probably Channel 4 as our reception for 5 was shite. I remember being struck by the specificity of the phrase, and how completely unsexual it was despite the appearance of one (or maybe both) of the lady in question's champion roundies.Ring a bell with anyone? Saw it twice so whatever it was, it was repeated, although both broadcasts predated the years when I knew what to do with the strange sensation it provoked.Not even interested in seeing it again, would just love to know someone else saw it too. Maybe even twice.
QuoteFrontal. Broadcast live from the Channel 4 building, Frontal was a subversive series looking at the 'underbelly of pop culture'. Included features on culture jamming, reviews on erotica, revenge techniques, performance art and a weekly instruction on how to get high legally, including how to get high using a cactus. The pilot episode for Frontal included showing a banned music video for the song 'Pretty When You Cry' by Vast. Another episode of Frontal showed the music videos for 'Plug Me In' and Metal Fingers In My Body by the group Add N To X. Presented by James Hyman, Natasha Bell, Tim Gould, Lisa Rogers and Italian music producer Charlie Rapino. A pilot for Frontal aired in 1999. Five episodes where aired in 2000. In total six episodes were made. Although Frontal was a very unique and subversive programme, it's short life span means that it seems to have fallen in to obscurity.
