The FCC Would Have A Field Day
I can't honestly believe that this clip made it on the air years ago. If it were in the U.S., the FCC would've never let it pass...too many sexual connotations, I can imagine.
Anybody know anything about the validity of this, and what the heck the show as all about?
Thanks Jesse for the link.
Update on 3/15: Finally found something useful on the Snopes forums. Apparently this video has been around online for years. It never aired on TV during the regular run of the show, but did during one of those "TV's Biggest Blunders" type of shows. It was originally only created for staff, cast, and crew enjoyment. There's an interview with the guy on the show that basically validates that it was never aired during the regular show.
Andrew: The Christmas tape that Thames produced, the naughty Rainbow which has been featured on TV Offal where Victor Lewis-Smith said it was the "unscreened pilot."
Geoffrey: Victor Lewis-Smith or someone else...
Andrew: Graham Norton?
Geoffrey: You just reminded me, that's right, yes. The VT department of each ITV company, every Christmas had a competition to enter all the outtakes from their particular companies programme out put, and see which ones were the funniest. But ours wasn't an outtake, we specially did it. It was specially scripted and we did it and I never saw it! We did it and Thames won it, but what they actually won, I don't know. But I never saw the video. I can't remember much about it except for Zippy with a banana.
