Fact Two

Angered by restrictive cuts to the contraversial
show 'Brass Eye' Chris Morris decided to get revenge on Channel 4 director Michael Grade by inserting the subliminal message 'Grade Is a Cunt' into the final episode of the series. The show was not recommisioned.

In revenge Morris sent a letter to Nelson Mandela describing how Grade had campaigned to keep him in prison and another letter posing as Grade to singer Paul Simon explaining why he thought Art Garfunkel was the more talented out of the two.

As a tribute when Adam & Joe paradied Morris's other show 'Jam' in their sketch Goitre, they included a similar message which does feature on the DVD but is damn impossible to track down. The Brass Eye message has been ommited from that DVD.
