Controversal spoof of current affairs television, and the role of celebrity in the UK.
During the "all animals are vegetarian" sketch, an edition of the journal "Nature" is shown that seems to have published a hoax article on the subject.
Please help me.
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.
