An ambitious blend of comedy, horror, surrealism and sci-fi. Trading in nostalgia as remembered though a heavily lysergic fog, there are parodies of old TV shows, home videos, adverts, music and cartoons... all given a deliciously analogue, VHS, rinse.

Part-demented sketch show, part conspiracy thriller, Mr Biffo's Found Footage purports to be the mixed-up, glitchy, contents of a series of old video tapes that they mysterious "Mr Biffo" purchased at a car boot sale. Upon returning home and sliding them into his VCR, he found that they were previously the property of Xenoxxxx Industries - but the more he watched, the more he was drawn into this strange and nonsensical world.

As the conspiracy comes into focus over the course of the series, it concludes with a full-blooded 20-minute sci-fi movie which ditches the glitchy VHS look for something more high-end. The Trojan Arse Protocol special was filmed in 4K, and shot on location in a former nuclear bunker, somewhere beneath the Midlands...
