Not sure what the hell this is all about? In nutshell Brand and fellow BBC programmer Jonathan Ross left obscene voice mail messages on the phone of UK actor Andrew Sachs (best known for his role as the waiter Manual in the John Cleese classic series Fawlty Towers) regarding sexual relations Ross had with Sach's granddaughter.

If that's not bad enough they did it on air during the Brand's program. If that's not bad enough the episode was actually a pre-taped and it was authorized to air on Oct 18th - which it did. (OUCH!)
