Channel 4’s ‘Save The Badger’ promotion



30 August 2013 by Mike Watkins

Channel 4′s The Last Leg earlier this week saw Adam Hills and co-hosts Josh Widdicombe and Alex Brooker urged the public to go and buy the anti UK badger culling single by Brian May. The track has now hit the iTunes top 40.

In the edition of The Last Leg which aired on Wednesday Adam said:

“It’s available to be downloaded, you can actually download that song, I don’t think it’s made an impression on the charts yet. But – we’ve kind of become addicted to this song during the week, we’ve become obsessed by it, I want to see it on the charts. If you’re watching the show now, do whatever you can to play it during the week. If you’re a DJ put it on the radio, if you’re at a wedding, make it the first dance. Seriously by next week I want to see this song on the charts, can we at least try. I mean what is it 69p or something to download it.”

Since the plea, the ‘Save The Badger’ single has shot into the Official iTunes chart at number 39 … and continues to sell. Channel 4 say The Last Leg team are now on a mission to get the single even further up the charts before the next chart is announced.

I think we’ve got things wrong darling, what we need is a Tory cull. – TV Critic Queenie
