Episode menu

Series 3, Episode 3

What happens when George Bush takes a rollercoaster ride, Prince Philip talks scouse and Jeremy Paxman accuses David Cameron of being a Pink Pussy? It's real footage, Jim, but not as we know it.

Further details

Witness the first early tests of a voice warning for reversing lorries. Hear Martin Scorsese's harrowing account of directing The Rolf Harris Show in the 1960s, and another period drama comes unstuck as armed police raid the house next door. If you're only going to watch one mashed up footage show, then be sure it's this one.
