Tim Searle's Blue Xmas

Blue Xmas is a music video animated with a stylish (and very eighties) collage technique. It was made in 1988 by Tim Searle, then a West Surrey College of Art and Design student and now better known as the creator of 2DTV and the Have I Got News for You opening. The visual style is alien to his later projects, but his interest in social commentary is evident.

(Incidentally, Searle also wrote the song for the video, a blues number performed by Jo Law).
