    Well, that was a cracking evening

    It started with Michael Cumming coming on, after a very weird video mashup of highly distorted snippets from the program with the music that lasted a minute or two, to give a brief introduction, explaining that all this "new" stuff came from videotapes he'd made at the time from the original master recordings, for looking at stuff at home and what have you, and which have been sitting in a trunk ever since. Then on with the film, which is an hour long.

    It's cut in a very fast-paced manner, rather like the original series but more fragmentary due to its nature, with all sorts in there. Lots of behind-the-scenes snippets and corpsing, of course, but also whole sketches that were cut at the behest of Channel 4 like "Sutcliffe: The Musical starring Peter Sutcliffe as himself" for which they rented one of the light boards on Piccadilly Circus to advertise it for an hour or so one evening so they could film it, and apparently nobody noticed

    There's also the well-known animal lover Reggie Kray phoning from prison to read out a message, in which they get him to do repeated takes until he says the name of the organisation they supposedly represent (AAAAAAAZ) in a suitable ludicrous manner. This was never included in the original series as, a while later, a business associate of Mr Kray tracked down their office and made it very clear that they'd been rumbled and he no longer wished to be associated with the project

    And after the film, there was a Q&A session which was pretty interesting.

    So if you like Brass Eye and you get the chance to go see it, you should

    Oh, and it was so popular that although it was originally supposed to be in screen 2, Murder on the Orient Express got turfed out and sent there and Oxide Ghosts took its place in screen 1

    Back to ClientCo in the morning. I wonder if I'll manage to remember what I was doing during the journey there, or if I'll have to spend most of the day trying to work out what I was up to, as usual

    Goodnight all

    Morning denizens

    Not so cold out this morning, apparently, but that's because it's cloudy

    Can be doing without this getting up early malarkey, quite frankly

    Correction: there is a version (or versions?) of the Sutcliffe musical sketch out there (you can find it on YouTube) but the edit we saw had material that isn't out there anywhere else

    Somebody asked about the graphics in the Q&A, and he explained that they were made by graphics people who worked for ITN, and relished the opportunity to take their normal thing and, as he put it, "turn it up to twelve"

    I wish someone at this end client would tell me what they want. Stopping people doing stupid things doesn’t really generate the paperwork the management seem to love
    merely at clientco for the entertainment

    Morning everyone - manchester is dull and wet - so about usual then.

    You need to work harder making management look good whilst stopping stoopid people doing stoopid things. Maybe if you draw some big pictures and get them some crayons you may have some joy.
