"Making Christmas"
60s
12 Dec 2012
An excellent compilation featuring some of the well-known faces who regularly appear on Channel 4. Each is promising vital information about the festive season and when these people tell you how to roast your turkey... you listen. It's an excellent way for Channel 4 to flex its culinary muscles.

"Mark Watson"
25s
15 Oct 2009
Mark Watson reveals that a fan turned up to his recent twenty-four hour gig at the Edinburgh Festival with the comedian's name tattooed on his arm. It could have been worse... it could have been a picture of Mark Watson downing a pint of pear cider.

"Immodesty Blaize"
17s
15 Oct 2009
Burlesque dancer Immodesty Blaize tells us how she acquired her unusual name. It's a reference to Modesty Blaise, of course, but can you believe it was suggested by someone who came to fix her boiler? That scenario sounds oddly familiar.

"Pub Quiz"
45s
21 Mar 2009
A brilliant follow up to last year's promo has the quiz team quartet facing a life ban because they constantly win. Forced to desperate measures, they dress as women and Professor David Starkey looks like he's wandered off the set of League Of Gentlemen.

"Harold Pinter Tribute"
30s
4 Mar 2009
More4 finds just the right note to introduce their tribute to the late Harold Pinter. Juliet Stevenson and Michael Gambon provide suitable awed voices as the camera ponders an empty theatre

"Richard O'Brien"
40s
26 Feb 2008
Rocky Horror Picture Show writer Richard O'Brien launches a passionate defence of comedy acting in this intriguing More4 ident. O'Brien quite rightly suggests that emoting actors get too much praise in comparison with those who make us laugh... a much more accomplished skill.

"Rudolph"
20s
23 Dec 2007
The same actor who played Santa Claus as a lovable Cockney rogue in Idents for More4 last year turns up dressed as Rudolf and gives us an into the life of Father Christmas. It turns out the man in the red suit has been given a box set of The Sopranos and has adopted a wiseguy attitude.

"Ken Russell Season"
40s
2 Jul 2007
Clever trail for a season of movies from the terrible infant of British cinema has a series of figures representing the director recreating iconic scenes from his films. The most famous scene is surely the nude wrestling from Women In Love which, with two Russell lookalikes going at it, looks like a Sumo contest.

"Gene Wilder"
65s
27 May 2007
Gene Wilder recounts an anecdote that explains his unorthodox entrance in the first film version of Charlie & The Chocolate Factory. Wilder might not know it, but the fascination lies in seeing just how fragile actors' egos are even on a lightweight piece of tosh.

"Learning Lines"
20s
20 Feb 2007
Michael Gambon talks about the difficulty of learning lines as you get older. Apparently in the 1960s Gambon could glance at the lines just before doing a scene but now he will write down a few reminders around the set if he's able.

"Wine"

4 Feb 2007
Another amusing addition to the pub quiz campaign has David Starkey bemusing the bar maid in the pub when in addition to the pints of beer he has just ordered he asks for a bottle of the 'Lafite sixty-four'.

"You'll Never Be Me"
10s
29 Jan 2007
Brilliant addition to the current More4 campaign featuring Jon Snow, the patron saint of liberal broadcast journalism, enjoying a moment of conceit as he watches his stand-in, Krishnan Guru-Murthy. Snow comments: "you're good, baby... but you'll never be me."

"House Of Cards"
20s
28 Jan 2007
Half of More4's pub quiz team are building houses of cards on the pool table. Tony Robinson is explaining the finer details of his area of expertise to Kevin McCloud as the latter constructs a suitably 'grand design'. McCloud is chided when he suggests most of Robinson's modest construction must be underground.

"Pub Quiz Team"
65s
18 Jan 2007
Finally the definitive version of the lengthy ident for More4 which establishes the cleverness of four of its presenters by placing them as a demon team turning up for a Pub Quiz Night. They come unstuck on a low-brow question and ring around their mates (though you can't fool us with the Jon Stewart clip).

"Pub Quiz Team Caught Out"
45s
16 Jan 2007
A variation on the previous ad has the team of More4 luminaries caught out when asked the name of Britney Spears's baby and they are forced to text other More4 folk. None of them know either, but despite this failing, the More4 team triumphs.

"Pub Quiz Team"
45s
16 Jan 2007
Jon Snow, David Starkey, Kevin McCloud and Tony Robinson breeze into a pub to participate in the weekly quiz. their appearance strikes fear into the locals who are awed by their ability to answer questions on their various areas of expertise. One suspects they might do less well with low-brow questions.

"Wales"
25s
24 Dec 2006
Another brilliant piece of nonsense for the youngest member of the Channel 4 stable has an a actor purporting to be Santa poking fun at the Welsh by suggesting they still point in wonderment at planes in the sky and how this helps him offload out of date gifts on them.

More4
"Multi-Culturalism"
25s
24 Dec 2006
One of a pair of brilliant seasonal variations on More 4's traditional idents that have actors, directors, etc talking about an aspect of life. Here Santa offers his views on muti-culturalism and they turn out to pragmatic if, somewhat, politically incorrect.
