    Default BBC2 2004 retrospective

    Just wondered who saw the 2004 silly version on Beeb 2 the other night.
    An EXCELLENT demonstration of editing.
    George Bush singing New York, New York was the funniest thing I have seen for ages.

    Missed it, but Victor Lewis-Smith regarded it as "all-too-rare comedic excellence." If you're not familiar with VLS, he writes in Private Eye, as well as London's Evening Standard. A programmer himself, he delights in trashing pretentious TV with brilliant 'insider' journalism. A bouquet from him is praise indeed.

    It was originally shown over the New Year on BBC3. They reckon it took months to complete.

    You will surely get another chance. I only caught the last 20 mins, but it`s a BBC 3 effort, so it`s bound to get repeated to death.
    When I see it on my sky planner, I`ll post a note here to let you know.

    the editing of bush though, that's been done before. There are some flash movies about doing the same.
