Oxide Ghosts: The Brass Eye Tapes

Dir. Michael Cumming. UK, 2017. 1hr. Starring Chris Morris.

A documentary about the making of legendary TV series Brass Eye, made from hours of unseen footage from the personal archive of the director Michael Cumming. The film reveals the highs and lows from behind the scenes of one of the UK’s most iconic — and controversial — comedies.

The film will be followed by a Q&A with Michael Cumming, describing his experiences of working on-set with Chris Morris and reflecting on twenty years since Brass Eye’s first transmission. The discussion will be chaired by Professor Simon Kövesi, Head of Department of English and Modern Languages, Oxford Brookes.

[Oxide Ghosts] offers a well-judged and very rare insight into [Brass Eye’s] making, encapsulating the fun and covert excitement that went on while the project was still under wraps, before all the legal wrangling kicked in.’ Andy Murray, Chortle
