Shock Horror Aunty
Wednesday, 8.30pm, ABC1 The title of this curiously flat clip show comes from a headline in Sydney’s Daily Mirror. It followed the appearance on the 1988 Andrew Denton program Blah Blah Blah Blah of a band called Lubricated Goat. The all-male outfit played and gyrated bollock-naked, and none of their dangly bits were covered. The ABC switchboard melted down and there were mentions in parliament and in the aforementioned headline. The conceit of the program is that Craig Reucassel ( The Chaser, Balls of Steel) mans a complaints desk as he reviews the bits on the ABC that have provoked the most outrage through the years. Tonight, sex and nudity. Things begin with my colleague Graeme Blundell frolicking naked in a bath of spaghetti with a beautiful woman.
