Synopsis

Shamelessly cribbed from the Channel 4 website:
Nathan Barley is 26. He is a webmaster, guerrilla filmmaker, screenwriter, DJ and in his own words, a "self-facilitating media node". He is convinced he is the epitome of urban cool and therefore secretly terrified he might not be, which is why he reads Sugar Ape Magazine - his bible of cool.

Synopsis

A contavercial spoof of current-affairs programmes. Many prominent public figures were fooled into pledgning their support on screen for totaly fictional charities and campaigns.
