Banksy’s Antics Roadshow for Channel 4

Banksy in collaboration with Jamie D’cruz has produced an hour long documentary special for Channel 4 called “The Antics Roadshow”, which charts the history of behaving badly in public, from anarchists and activists to attention seeking eccentrics. The film is Narrated by Kathy Burke and will be broadcast on Saturday 13th August at 10.45 pm.

Here’s the Channel 4 blurb about the film:

Contributors include Michael Fagan talking about breaking into the Queen’s bedroom: ‘I looked into her eyes, they were dark’; and Noel Godin, who pioneered attacking celebrities with custard pies: ‘Instead of a bullet I give them a cake’.

Explaining his reasoning behind the show, Banksy said: ‘Basically I just thought it was a good name for a TV programme and I’ve been working back from there’.

The Antics Roadshow examines the stories behind some of the most audacious stunts of recent times and what motivates the perpetrators, from mindless boredom to heartfelt political beliefs.

It includes a world exclusive first interview with the man responsible for putting the turf Mohican on Winston Churchill’s head.
