Surreal and bizarre short films, based around a chosen theme. Off the Air is an American anthology television series created by Dave Hughes for Adult Swim. The series is presented without explanation or narration as a showcase of surreal footage arranged around a single loose theme (expressed in the episode title) and blended without pause into a single continuous presentation. The series premiered Adult Swim on January 1, 2011, 4:00 am New Year's Day. Hughes is a former employee of MTV Animation who first pitched it to Mike Lazzo at Adult Swim after producing a video mixtape for the network's 2010 Carnival Tour event. As a result of its 4 a.m. graveyard slot and small selection of episodes, the series remains relatively unknown on the network, but has been received positively and dubbed a cult phenomenon by critics and Adult Swim itself. The series has aired 36 episodes and 3 specials over the course of 10 seasons, including two episodes, "Technology" (by Wham City) and "Paradise" (by Ghosting.tv), that Adult Swim announced on October 13, 2017, would air in late 2017. On December 31, 2019, Dave Hughes tweeted that the episode "Patterns" was the "last [one] for now", indicating that the series has been put on hiatus until further notice. On June 9, 2020, the show came back with season 10.

James May: Our Man In Italy

James May is travelling the length and breadth of one of his favourite countries: Italy. Beginning in the Sicilian capital of Palermo and finishing in the Dolomites, it's a trip that will take him to almost every region of Italy. There'll be culture, food, industry, and even a bit of sport, all played out against some of the world's most stunning urban and rural backdrops. For James, Italy has always seemed like a country that doesn't seem to make sense; simultaneously at the cutting edge - of science, of fashion, of engineering - and yet its crumbling infrastructure, endemic corruption, and eye-watering public debt all describe, on paper, a country and society that seems on the cusp of failure. Somehow, though, Italy and the Italians always prevail. It's a conundrum that leads James to ask a question: have the Italians sussed the secret to living a good life? And after spending eleven weeks in the country, might James actually discover la dolce vita?
