Blue Jam

Blue Jam was an ambient, surreal dark comedy and horror radio programme created and directed by Chris Morris. It was broadcast on BBC Radio 1 in the early hours of the morning, for three series from 1997 to 1999; the programme gained cult status due to its unique mix of surreal monologue, ambient soundtrack, synthesised voices edited broadcasts and recurring sketches. It featured vocal performances of Kevin Eldon, Julia Davis, Mark Heap, David Cann and Amelia Bullmore, with Morris himself delivering disturbing monologues, one of, revamped and made into the BAFTA-winning short film My Wrongs #8245–8249 & 117. Writers who contributed to the programme included Graham Linehan, Arthur Mathews, Peter Baynham, David Quantick, Jane Bussmann, Robert Katz and the cast; the programme was adapted into the TV series Jam, which aired in 2000. All episodes of Blue Jam are available for streaming and download on the Internet Archive. On his inspiration for making the show, Morris commented: "It was so singular, it came from a mood, quite a desolate mood.

I had this misty, boggy mood anyway, so I just went with that. But no doubt getting to the end of something like Brass Eye, where you've been forced to be a sort of surrogate lawyer, that's the most creatively stifling thing you could do." Morris described the show as being "like the nightmares you have when you fall asleep listening to the BBC World Service". Morris requested that the show be broadcast at 3 a.m. on Radio 1 "because at that hour, on insomniac radio, the amplitude of terrible things is enormously overblown". As a compromise, the show was broadcast at midnight without much promotion. Morris included sketches too graphic or transgressive for radio that he knew would be cut so as to make his other material seem less transgressive in comparison. During the airing of episode 6 of series one, a re-editing of the Archbishop of Canterbury's speech at Princess Diana's funeral was deemed too offensive for broadcast, was switched with a different episode as it aired; each episode opened with a short spoken monologue describing, in surreal, broken language, various bizarre feelings and situations, set to ambient music interspersed with short clips of other songs and sounds.

The introduction would always end with "welcome in Blue Jam", inviting the listener, experiencing such feelings, to get lost in the program. The sketches within dealt with heavy and taboo topics, such as murder, missing or dead children, rape. Doctor: "The Doctor" is a "normal" physician working in a standard British medical practice. However, he has a habit of treating his patients in bizarre and disturbing ways, such as prescribing heroin for a cold, making a man with a headache jump up and down in order to make his penis swing and making a patient leave and go into the next room so he can examine him over the telephone, his name is revealed to be Michael Perlin in several sketches. The Monologue Man: Short stories up to 10 minutes in length, written from the perspective of a lonely and inept man; each story involves the protagonist's acquaintance Suzy in some capacity. Michael Alexander St. John: A parody of hyperbolic and pun-laden radio presenting, St. John presents items such as the top 10 singles charts and the weekend's gigs.

Bad Sex: Short clips of two lovers making bizarre erotic requests of one another, such as to "shit your leg off" and "make your spunk come out green". The Interviewer: conducting real interviews with celebrities such as Andrew Morton and Jerry Springer, Morris confuses and mocks his subjects with ambiguous and odd questions. Mr. Ventham: An awkward man who requires one-to-one consultations with Mr. Reilly, who seems to be his psychologist, for the most banal of matters; the sketches not listed are in the style of a documentary. In one sketch, a character voiced by Morris describes a man attempting to commit suicide by jumping off a second-story balcony repeatedly. Morris included a series of'radio stings', bizarre sequences of sounds and prose as a parody of modern DJs' own soundbites and self-advertising pieces; each one revolves around a contemporary DJ, such as Chris Moyles, Jo Whiley and Mark Goodier involving each DJ dying in a graphic way or going mad in some form – for example, Chris Moyles covering himself in jam and hanging himself from the top of a building.

Three series were produced, with a total of eighteen episodes. All episodes were broadcast weekly on BBC Radio 1. Series 1 was broadcast from 14 November to 19 December 1997.
