Definitely filmed live as proven when they were back stage and were flicking between channels. The news on BBC 1 at the time was identical.

Funnily enough I've been having an issue with my amp so when the sound cut out the missus got annoyed and said it was time to buy another one. I twigged that it wasn't the amp but she fell for it.

Brilliant episode. So audacious.

Need to watch it again as it whizzed by so quickly.

Those images could've been added in.

Twitter is making Ghostwatch comparisons.

I might need to see this, but the effect will obviously be completely lost now.

Loved it. Some of the effect was lost by it being a "Halloween special" though. Imagine if new season had opened with that.

Reminded me of the brilliant Alexi Sayle show that started mucking about with format and channel identifiers. They got a good three minutes into a very faithful recreation of a "Juliet Bravo"* episode before revealling the actual gag.

* How dare they recast a police inspector as a woman?!?
Be excellent to each other. And party on!

But if you turned over to BBC 1 at that very moment that was what was showing. A live news programme.

That's even more fiendishly brilliant than I thought, then!

Only watched it once but I think there are loads of stuff like than, including the tweet from Shearsmith that came up live on my Twitter feed as he tweeted it in the show.

Just watched this - amazing! Would have worked much better live of course.
Sure there were live parts as well as pre-shot ones.

Watched it again last night with my daughter and she noticed the shining inspired wallpaper in their dressing room.
