Jam is a British comedy television series created by Chris Morris. It was based on the earlier BBC Radio 1 show, Blue Jam, and consisted of a series of unsettling sketches unfolding over an ambient soundtrack.
Many of the sketches re-used the original radio soundtracks with the actors lip-synching their lines, an unusual technique which added to the programme's unsettling atmosphere.
The show was broadcast on Channel 4 during March and April 2000.
The cast included Amelia Bullmore, David Cann, Julia Davis, Kevin Eldon and Mark Heap. It was written by Chris Morris and Peter Baynham, with Jane Bussmann, David Quantick, Graham Linehan, Arthur Mathews and the cast. Chris Morris also stars in some sketches, although not as many as his co-stars.
The series consisted of six twenty-minute episodes.

Also included is a remixed version of Chris Morris' 'Jam' entitled 'Jaaaaam'. It is basically exactly the same but contains far more visual effects and filters and some soundtrack changes to create a much more surreal version.
If you're a Chris Morris completist it is a must see and if you haven't seen it you really must, in my opinion it is one of the very best things to ever be on tv, and there has never been anything like it since. If you're easily offended or not a fan of Morris' other work then you should probably stay away...
