Gus Murdoch's Sacred Cows
Mockumentary in which pedantic investigative reporter Gus Murdoch examines the sacred cows of British culture. Written by and starring Stephen Carlin
Gus Murdoch believes that he is the greatest journalist around - the new Jeremy Paxman. In fact, he just comes across as a total idiot and a deeply annoying pedant.
Our Review: The pilot of this show was runner up in the 'Witty and Twisted' competition strand on BBC Radio 7. The full series had some good moments, such as Gus arguing with a pub landlady about the Union Jack (in fact it is the Union Flag, it's only called the Union Jack at sea), but it was generally a bit too slow for us to fully enjoy.
