Charlie Broker’s Screenwipe
Hiding away on BBC4 earlier this year was one of the funniest programmes about television ever made, Charlie Brooker’s Screenwipe. His caustic and sarcastic look at modern television and it’s audience is a breath of fresh against the season-long X-Factor/Strictly Come Dancing/Big Brother monstrosities we have on our screens.
Here he is in action highlighting some idiots desperate for fame (warning, contains swearing):
And if you’re in the mood for some online television here’s are some alternative YouTube videos I recommend:
Battle of the Album Covers (3 mins) – Famous album covers come alive and fight each other.
Charlie Brooker’s look at R Kelly’s Trapped in the Closet (2 mins) – This has to be seen to be believed. The world’s first hip-hopera.
Richard Dawkins lecture at an American college (37 mins) – Brilliant reading of some of Dawkin’s God Delusion book.
Japanese footage of today’s release of the Nintendo Wii (5 mins) – I should be getting mine at midnight on Thursday!
