I like to think it was seeing the Newsdance that inspired Madonna to make her Vogue video. 4 years earlier.
The first part of “The Pool” – and the rest of the Day Today episode as youtube didn’t let me cut and paste properly (Buy the DVDs though, kids. Then I get 23p or something). This isn’t the bit with Steve Coogan’s pool supervisor. I’ll post that elsewhere… (Buy the DVD)
To this day, I don’t think anything annoys me more than lazy “satirical” cartoons. Hold on… let me just think….
No, nothing annoys me more.
What’s weird about seeing The Day Today again is that we’re probably now the age of some of the characters we played. Steve Coogan’s now the age we saw Partridge as being. I think I’ve still got a couple more years to catch up with Brant, though well done make-up artist Lisa Cavalli-Green for predicting the in-vogue Alistair Darling’s eyebrows…
Rebecca Front’s Barbara Wintergreen reports on Patrick Marber’s Chapman Baxter and his execution at the hands of his last victim (me), reanimated by Steve Coogan’s Travis Davely (how we giggled at the silliness of that name which was DJ “the Hairy Cornflake” Dave Lee Travis’ name the other way round).
