Each episode takes the form of a broadcast made by a fictional pirate television station, manned by a small number of VJs who introduce various sketches disguised as news or human interest reports. The style of both the program and its official website is deliberately amateurish. Most episodes involve a framing story which intertwines with certain sketches.

This song was utilised as ongoing theme music for the 1979 film Mr. Mike's Mondo Video in the same vein as the song “More” was used in this film's inspiration, Mondo Cane. The Finnish rock band Eppu Normaali borrowed the opening of “Telstar” as the guitar solo for their song “Science Fiction” (1979). In the movie The Prophecy 3: The Ascent (2000), the angel Gabriel, played by Christopher Walken, plays trumpet to this song while driving on the highway. A “sound-alike” of this song appears in the film Strangers with Candy (2006). According to the audio commentary for the film, they were unsuccessful in getting the rights to the actual song. The song was used at the end of episode 10 of the second season of the AMC series Mad Men entitled “The Inheritance” (2008). A modern version of the song is used as the intro for the Flemish comedy TV series Willy's en Marjetten (2006). “Knights of Cydonia”, a 2006 song by rock band Muse, was influenced by “Telstar”. Lead guitarist and vocalist Matthew Bellamy is the son of The Tornados' rhythm guitarist, George Bellamy. The song is included in the jukebox musical, Return to the Forbidden Planet.
