Comfortably Numb is a 75-minute docu-drama for Channel 4 about recovering alcoholics in a clinic. Produced by Kudos and written and directed by Leo Regan, the programme was posted at Pepper. The decision to shoot with DV was made to give it a realistic, documentary feel, so post supervisor Jethro Harris got involved early in the shoot. He advised Regan on the lighting and filters required to counteract colour problems caused by arcing from 4:3 to 16:9. Regan underexposed footage, which enabled colourist Dan Coles to do what he terms a "hard-hitting, but natural grade". Comfortably Numb's transmission date is to be confirmed.
