To celebrate the demise of the increasingly straw-clutching Channel Four "Top Ten" series, we at AView, have compiled a few lists of our own. But not wanting to alienate our audience by clearly getting things in the wrong order, we present an un-placed selection for you to appraise for yourselves. Personal outrage can still be generated as a consequence of the absence of any favourites from the lists here-given. Selectors' initials are given as a focus for blame and hatred.
