TV: A is for...

Alternative 3

ONE-OFF PRETEND conspiracy documentary about the supposed disappearance of super-intelligent citizens, abducted to start a new civilisation on Mars in the event of a nuclear war. Neat parodies of po-faced WORLD IN ACTION-type stuff; TIM BRINTON was the reporter doing it to your face.

    “TV Cream says: Shown on 1st April”

    This is utter nonsense as it was transmitted on at 21:00h on Monday, June 20th, 1977.

    I’ve read it was planned to be shown on 1/4/1977, but someone thought it would make it too obvious it was a spoof.

    Any other British mockumentaries in this vein, Ghostwatch aside?
    Death of a Princess almost feels thus – being a dramatisation of a planned documentary. Here’s some more.
