Under the Moon was an offbeat, late-night 1990s sports show on the United Kingdom's Channel 4. The show was originally hosted by Danny Kelly and comedian Tim Clark. The pair lasted for 10 episodes before Tim left to be replaced by another comedian, Tom Binns. Binns was axed from the show after he offered to "give Michael Owen one up the arse" after he scored an impressive goal in the 1998 World Cup. He was replaced by Lisa Rogers but the show was cancelled later that year. The show consisted of sports guests, live phone calls from viewers, comedy from Binns, music, and reports — all connected to sport. Although a sports show, after the main show had ended, Kelly would later act as an in-vision host providing links to the next programme and were thus listed as part of the show. Examples of these were repeats of the now defunct Channel 4 GamesMaster which ran between 1992-1998. Regular guests included Martin Johnson and Roger Black.

The Voice of the Moon is a 1990 Italian dramatic comedy film directed by Federico Fellini and starring Roberto Benigni, Paolo Villaggio, and Nadia Ottaviani. Returning to themes he first explored in La strada, Fellini crafts a parable on the whisperings of the soul that only madmen and vagabonds are capable of hearing. Based on the novel Il poema dei lunatici by Ermano Cavazzoni, the film is about a fake inspector of wells and a former prefect who wander through the Emilia-Romagna countryside of Fellini's childhood and discover a dystopia of television commercials, fascism, beauty pageants, rock music, Catholicism, and pagan ritual. The film received David di Donatello Awards for Best Actor, Best Editing, and Best Production Design, and nominations for Best Director, Best Film, Best Cinematography, Best Music, and Best Producer. The Voice of the Moon was Fellini's last film before his death in 1993.
