Why Bother? (Talkback/BBC Radio 3, 1994)
A series of ten-minute comic conversations between Chris Morris and Peter Cook, taking the form of interviews with Sir Arthur Streeb-Greebling, a debauched aristocratic character whom Cook had been performing since the 1960s. The two improvised the entire five shows from scratch in the studio, yet the results still managed to sound amazingly slick and brilliantly devised. Although "Why Bother?" was largely unknown and unheard until the BBC gave the series a belated release on cassette and CD, it captures both Morris and Cook at the height of their powers of invention, and in particular it disproves the lazy and completely unsubstantiated journalistic myth that Cook somehow lost his comic powers in his later years. Importantly, this series marked the first collaboration between Morris and the independent production company Talkback, with whom he continues to work closely to this day.
10/01/1994 - Eels, Love And Guns
"Now on Radio 3, the first in a series of five interviews with one of Britain's most distinguished peers. Sir Arthur Streeb-Greebling is renowned at home and abroad as an entrepreneur, politician, humanist and explorer. He is perhaps one of the true examples of a Renaissance Man. However, his more controversial projects, such as his pioneering working testing designer drugs on imported orphans have led to strained relations with the media. In 1968 he broke Malcolm Muggeridge's arm in two. He's refused to be interviewed for more than ten years. What follows is therefore a unique chance to hear the recollections and opinions of Sir Arthur Streeb-Greebling in conversation with the broadcaster Christopher Morris". A simple question about experiments on eels leads to a string of sordid and revealing confessions, as Sir Arthur discusses his roles in the instigation of the LA Riots and the expansion of Betty Grable's legs, reminisces painfully about his love affair with Lita Rosa, and reveals the truth behind his recent arrest in the vicinity of Eric Clapton's house.
11/01/1994 - Bears
"Now on Radio 3, the second in a series of interviews with one of Britain's most distinguished peers, Sir Arthur Streeb-Greebling. Tomorrow sees the publication of the Sir Arthur report on prisons and, earlier today, Christopher Morris met him to discuss it". Sir Arthur heaves a weary sigh as he faces up to the inevitable and impending end of his life, leading on to his plans to revolutionise prisons based on his father's insistence that he should spend his early childhood behind bars, his days spent fighting in the Foreign Legion alongside Rex Harrison, and the year and a half he endured in the company of some Canadian Bears.
12/01/1994 - Christ
"And now on Radio 3, the third in this week's series of interviews with Sir Arthur Streeb-Greebling. As well as being a renowned Internationalist, a confident of Fidel Castro and enemy of Leon Brittan, Sir Arthur is a less well-known, but no less accomplished, explorer and biologist. In tonight's interview with the broadcaster Christopher Morris he reveals the remarkable archaeological discovery he'll be unveiling in tomorrow's lecture to the Royal Society". Sir Arthur wants to start a very boring anecdote about beekeeping, but the rest of the world wants to hear about his discovery of the fossilised remains of the infant Christ, the implications that this breakthrough holds for the world's religions, and the plans of a large Japanese corporation to mass-produce miniaturised cloned versions. [This was based on an unused idea from "On The Hour"]
13/01/1994 - Prisoner Of War
"This is BBC Radio 3, and now, the fourth in our series of interviews with the politician and human rights abuser Sir Arthur Streeb-Greebling. This esteemed and reviled knight, now well into his late 70s, has agreed to break a ten year media silence for Radio 3 and speak to the broadcaster Christopher Morris. It's not quite clear why he made this decision although it is known that he's unlikely to finish his autobiography 'Not Worth The Candle' before his imminent death". To the accompaniment of Gavin The Hairdresser and his pre-snipping ritual, Sir Arthur recounts his days in a World War II Japanese prison camp and the innovations he brought to the production of railway lines, and explains exactly how four and a half seconds of film can prove his innocence of the charges of collaborating with the enemy and beating his workers. He also pulls a sleeve from his jacket while talking.
14/01/1994 - Drugs Etc.
"And now Radio 3 presents the last in our series of interviews with Sir Arthur Streeb-Greebling. Sir Arthur has always professed a strong love of music, writing a string of patriotic toe-tappers during the war and setting fire to Brian Wilson when he ran out of hits. In this evening's interview with the broadcaster Christopher Morris, Sir Arthur explains why he decided to purchase the BBC Concert Orchestra". Sir Arthur pinpoints the violent details of some of his more bloodthirsty clashes with business rivals, and discusses the various politicians who took to copying his moves, from Michael Heseltine devising his own wrestling move 'The Heseltine Handy' with the aid of WWF fighter Rudy The Giant Vacuum Cleaner, to Leon Brittan's pathetic attempts at bursting into meetings on a food trolley.
"Sir Arthur is not expected to live beyond May"
Why Bother is avaible on BBC radio collection CD and cassette.
(Talkback/BBC Radio 1, 1997-1999)
Mere months after the stormclouds of controversy had rained down on â€œBrass Eye? Chris Morris made a surprisingly low key return with this almost unannounced new series. â€œBlue Jam? an experimental comedy series that for once really did do something experimental, moved sharply away from the previous style of Morris?humour; instead, it adopted a sketch format, with its disturbing and surreal scenarios of dark and sinister concepts sketched out by desolate monologues and dreamy, murmured conversations. Behind these sounds lay a complex and intricate mix of ambient dance music, continental pop and spectral ballads, closely mirroring the mood of each item with their evocative sounds. Morris produced and wrote (with Peter Baynham and others) the series, although he shared performing duties with Kevin Eldon, Julia Davis, David Cann, Amelia Bulmore and Mark Heap. â€œBlue Jam?was broadcast in the small hours of the morning, but even here Morris was not safe from the attentions of the censors, and the final show of the initial run of six episodes was faded out after just fifteen minutes when Radio 1 panicked over his re-editing of The Archbishop Of Canterburyâ€™s speech from the funeral of The Princess Of Wales (rumours persist that Morris was told this could not be broadcast, but surreptitiously swapped the tapes at the last minute). Into total, three sets of six episodes were produced between 1997 and 1999, two of which won the Sony Award for Best Radio Comedy.

Blue Jam (Talkback, 1998)
The pilot of a television adaptation of the radio series, which later mutated into â€œjam? It is probable that this show featured the same audio and visual experimentation that characterised the later series, and that earlier versions of many of the sketches were included. It is also entirely possible that this show featured a version of the â€˜Rothko?monologue, subliminal shots of which were included in several episodes of â€œjam? The entire show exists in Talkbackâ€™s archives.
jam (Talkback/Channel 4, 2000)
A television version of the radio series â€œBlue Jam? retaining the macabre subject matter and ambient soundtracks of the original, and presenting the material in distorted, disorientating visuals. Featuring the same team as its radio precursor, â€œjam?pushed the boundaries of television comedy further than any other show had done for many years, experimenting with form and setting as much as it did with notions of taste and acceptability. Although the series concentrated mainly on sketch material, it is possible that both the â€˜Rothko?monologue (which appeared in the form of subliminal clips) and the Diana Funeral speech (which has since appeared at bishopslips.com) were filmed but not used. Unusually, â€œjam?was transmitted without a commercial break, at Morris?insistence and Channel 4â€™s agreement. At the time of writing, no decision had been announced on a second series of â€œjam? although rumours suggest that one is at least under consideration.
jaaaaam (Talkback/Channel 4, 2000)
A set of remixes of the six episodes of Jam featuring altered visual effects and soundtracks. These were transmitted in the early hours of Sunday morning, starting in the week of transmission of the third episode of Jam and were shown between 09/04/2000 and 14/04/2000. Although six editions of Jaaaaam were prepared, only five were shown, with episode six appearing where episode five should have been. It is believed that this was connected to material that had been excised from the original Jam five, which Morris insisted should be reinstated for Jaaaaam This dispute had clearly not been settled by the following week, when the ordinary Jam five appeared in the slot where the final Jaaaaam should have been.
