Sometimes reality is harder to believe than fiction, and when that happens, what better medium to capture its madness than animation? When the BBC Ireland realised that, they created On the Air bringing to life some of the most idiosyncratic phone-ins from BBC Radio Ulster’s Gerry Anderson show to the screen by animating the real-life dialogue with colorful characters and re-interpreted settings.
Gerry Anderson said he was concerned with how the animators are representing him: “I am still upset about having only three fingers on each hand and no nose. I’m taking this to the highest court in the land. And then to Strasbourg.”
In this episode (The third one of the series) Gerry’s intrigued by Karen’s call who’s having trouble with a psychotic crow attacking her house. The series was produced by Flickerpix around 2006.
