Chute (stylised as CHUTE!, or just Chute!) was a 2007 UK television program made by the BBC for young viewers. The show starred Ross Lee, watching many different odd segments on VHS tapes looking for the one that would show him the way out of the trash chute he was pushed into.[1] The show only lasted from September to December of that year, and BBC One only aired any episodes at all during that time frame, but the show was later rerun on the CBBC Channel from 2007-2008.


For years, only a small amount of clips and one full episode had been found of this rare BBC show, and the fact that it was never released on BBC DVD or on the BBC iPlayer didn't do anything in the show's favor.

However, in early September 2016, some searchers discovered that Ross Lee's official website had seven episodes of the thirteen making up the entire show available for public viewing, making them found.[2]

In June 2017, all the remaining episodes of Chute were found by Scottstrachann when he contacted the dubbing mixer of Chute for details on episodes eight through thirteen.

At some point afterward, The BBC removed the 1st, 3rd, and 6th episodes for copyright infringement. However, a user called Shiba has reuploaded the 1st, 3rd and 6th Episode on MEGA, so the series is fully found once again.
