Channel 4 at 30: Da Ali G Show
Da Ali G Show was an outrageous comedy/reality series which aired in 2000. It starred Sacha Baron Cohen as the Staines junglist, the self-proclaimed 'voice of yoof' who delivered an inimitable mix of global reportage and celebrity chat.
Ably assisted by Borat (Kazakhstan's finest journalist) and the glamorous Bruno, the show quickly became a pop-culture favourite. When Richard Madeley dressed up as Ali G on ITV's This Morning and asked Judy: "Is it because I is black?", you knew this had become a phenomenon.
Honourable mention: Bo Selecta for pushing the envelope of taste.
