Oxide Ghosts: The Brass Eye Tapes is a new 60 minute film featuring out-takes from Brasseye, the incendiary TV news show that was the brainchild of English satirist Chris Morris, who is also known for The Day Today, Four Lions, Jam and On The Hour.

Morris’ work was anarchic and funny but largely worked within the confines of a traditional news broadcast format, either on TV or radio. Brass Eye was his audacious crowning glory, a fake news before such a thing existed, which peddled preposterous ideas about the world and took gullible celebrities for a ride into humiliation based on ignorance.

Most famously, Brass Eye tackled paedophilia in hilariously way that panicked the moral class.

Now, the director of the show Michael Cumming is marking the show’s 20th anniversary with screenings of a 60 minute film called Oxide Ghosts: ThE Brass Eye Tapes featuring out-takes from the show, shown with Morris’ blessing.

The Dublin screening (now 2) happens in the Sugar Club and will feature a Q&A afterwards with Cumming on Wednesday November 29th. Tickets are €15 + fees. Later show on same night.

The film will not be shown online or given a release so the only way to see it is to attend one of the screenings.
