Coogan Pirate Tapes Recalled
Fans of British actor and comedian STEVE COOGAN have been asked to return illegal recordings made of him performing - so the footage can be used in a new TV documentary. Bosses of the unnamed show about the ALAN PARTRIDGE creator's career have vowed not take legal action against those responsible for taking footage, and are offering to pay for returned tapes. A spokesman says, "The makers of the programme are willing to pay a small fee for any recordings. They are not bothered if they were recorded illegally - it doesn't matter. They just want access to the recording."
