A few weeks ago myself and Cop were at Sumners to get some footage transferred for the Bad Lad DVD release. While we were there, Jamie the senior colorist treated us to this years Channel 4 Alternative Christmas message that was to be delivered from infamous Shameless character Frank Gallagher. He showed it to us because he'd worked on it, and he said it probably wouldn't be shown as Channel 4 were a bit scared about showing it on Christmas Day.

Today I received an email from my old filmmaker buddy and fellow ex-Guerrilla filmmaking tour buddy Alex Ganley. It turns out that he was behind the Shameless Alternative Christmas Message. It also turned out that Channel 4 have shelved it, for being too offensive. Not only that, but they also felt it was too offensive to be put onto the internet, but somehow it's managed to escape the censor as he explains in his email below.

Now they deem it too offensive to put on the internet, on grounds of taste. Yes, this is the same Channel Four that screened the reality show ‘Make Me A Muslim’ earlier this week.

Unfortunately, someone has leaked a copy onto You Tube. Please be sure to warn as many people as you have in your address book - on grounds of taste - it is imperative they should avoid, at all cost, the following link:


Don't forget, as Alex said it's imperative you warn EVERYONE you know in order to make sure absolutely no one sees it.

Should have created a 'theft of the year' thread for nicking my story.
