[f_minor] IT crowd - GG on film

Dear f_miners

This needs to be explained. 

I recently saw an episode of the wondeerfully funny british comedy series The IT Crowd and thought I heard GG play his beloved CD318 in the background. The snippet is very short, you can hear it at 10:01 or so right here: http://www.tudou.com/programs/view/M-CLm8bsSFw/

This particular episode is a spoof on the Hannibal Lecter idea so it would make a certain sense and it would be a wonderful in-joke to use a GG recording. The IT Crowd is full of in-jokes and references anyway. The show itself has an audience of 2-3  million just in the UK alone so I can't be the only one who spotted that joke...

I wasn't sure if it is a GG recording so I asked Mary en privée about her opinion and she was kind enought to directly reply to the list. I reckon it is a GG recording but they used a terribly small print for the end credits, but I will find out. Still nice to see GG pop up in "pop culture" every now and then ...

That very well could be Gould tinkling the ivories of CD 318 but is there any formal acknowledgement?  

There is for this morsel of the Adagio from BMV 974:
