I'd call it a fedora.

It hasn't been released to the people who funded it on kickstarter yet, so don't expect to see that one for a while yet. It has been screened at various film festivals.

Well all the events in the description of An Honest Liar match this film exactly.

I think this was an edited version... BBC Four have done that before.

Suspect it was An Honest Liar - having seen https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GFYU4-yU04w - I think it's the same thing...

Yes, I think it was...

Adam Savage was definitely in it.

I think this is the one on YouTube. Unfortunately, it's in 6 parts:

I am not accountable to any God. I am accountable to myself - and not because I think I am God as some theists would try to assert - but because, no matter what actions I take, thoughts I think, or words I utter, I have to be able to live with myself.

Cool, I'll have to watch it when I get some time.

RE: James Randi BBC show...
Well, those videos have been taken down by YouTube due to a copyright claim by Flim Flam Films, the makers of "An Honest Liar" so I guess you're right that they decided to show it to the entire UK before their kickstarter backers. Hrrm.

Edit: Ok, here's the official word from the "An Honest Liar" facebook page:
"For all of those upset and calling this a scam and accusing us of thievery, please standby for more information. We are working to resolve this, but the BBC bought this film years ago and they had a contract to show it, despite our efforts to delay the broadcast. We are sorry you are out a few dollars, but frankly, this might cost us a great deal of money and hurt the chances of the film seeing the worldwide audience it deserves. So please, we ask you to not accuse and be patient."
...
"The film was broadcast over our objections, and our point - though perhaps not well worded due to frustration over the situation and jet-lag - is simply that what happened was not out of greed on our part and in fact something we tried to prevent but couldn't. That said, what was broadcast was not the entire film and we are currently working on a way for our backers to see the full film as soon as possible."

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.
