Brass Eye

Show Summary

Brass Eye was a controversial show that reported (so to speak) the issues confronting British popular society.

Drugs, Animal Rights, Crime, Paedophillia, these are the issues that the tabloids seem to spend their days cashing in on. Brass Eye focused on the press and society's irational knee jerk reaction. It took full advantage of c-list celebrities desperate to look like they care about these 'important' issues but who only end up exposing their own ignorance and willingness to say anything if it gets them on TV.

  • Brass Eye and Chris Morris. Daring, trend setting and controversial. What more do you want?

    9.3
    After The News Show and The Day Today broke new ground in radio and TV satire. The BBC started to get nervous, their own news shows then began to resemble the show that was parodying them far too much. So nervous were they that the BBC didn't want to touch Brass Eye (having said that Michael Grade got very nervous about showing the final episode of Brass Eye)and Chris Morris moved on to Channel 4. From getting Jilly Cooper to draw a picture of an elephant with it's trunk stuck up its anus, to having a made up drug called CAKE mentioned in Hansard to DJ Dr Fox eulogising on a lobster and a paedophile having the same brain functions Brass Eye never shied away from difficult topics nor from showing up rent a gob B list celebrities.moreless
