Broadcast on BBC3 TV in 2006, THE MESSAGE was a development of my BBCR4 sketch show ‘Radio9’ and was similarly based around a broadcaster (‘The Message’) whose programming was submerged and usurped by a deluge of terrible promos and inappropriate advertising. So quite like actual television.
‘Nosebleed-inducingly funny, The Message takes a sledgehammer to all that is smug, self-regarding and pompous about Public Service broadcasting. There’s a distinct danger that this will be mistaken for real programming’. – Time Out
