The image is distorted to give an impression of what it's like to watch television when you suffer from a visual impairment in this film advertising the 'audio description' service. DAVID would like the job of describing what's happening in Channel 5's programming but he couldn't guarantee not to editorialise.

"Below The Water Line"

This just makes me think of that ad where the kid wants to poo at Paul's house.

Channel 5
"Drama"
60s
21 Feb 2012
A compilation of clips from various shows broadcast on Channel 5 are used to illustrate the proposition "we are Channel 5 and this is what we do". Sadly for anyone hoping to make original British drama, this confessional boast is true - because Richard Desmond's station barely makes any programmes at all.

"Guitar"
15s
5 Nov 2008
Channel Five still feels like the new kid on the block of British broadcasting (even though the satellite channels are stuffed to the rafters with newer channels than they). Here, Five displays growing confidence with an excellent ident which shows a giant hand using a motorway as part of a guitar.

Channel 5
"Windmills Of Your Mind"
60s
17 Jul 2008
A man dozing in his office is remembering all the wonderful programmes he watched on Channel 5's online service... as is a traffic warden and a member of staff at a fast food restaurant. Oddly, the online service is represented visually as a spaceship floating in the sky.

Channel 5
"NBA Playoffs"
35s
21 Apr 2008
A split screen is cleverly used in this trail for the NBA playoffs. Two prominent basketball players talk about their desire to win in a graphic reminder that not everyone who feels that victory is their destiny can be correct.

Channel 5
"Audio Descriptions"
30s
1 Mar 2008
It cannot be a coincidence that various broadcasters are currently providing us with so much information about Audio Descriptions. As with the ads on other channels, we are shown the service in action... it appears to be a bit like watching television with a talkative friend who has an autistic need to describe.

Channel 5
"Cheating Partner"
70s
2 Jan 2008
The male protagonist in this trail for a forthcoming programme is trying to disguise his infidelity. However, it appears that his girlfriend has substantial investigative skills and she is soon piecing together the clues and working out what has been going on.

Channel 5
"Food Shocks"
30s
9 Mar 2007
A pair of programmes designed to investigate the effect diet is having on our children and the nation as a whole are trailed here. Channel 5 seems to specialise in this distinctive realm of programming these days... still, better than when they were best known for soft porn.
