BUG returns to the BFI Southbank in London later this month, with a couple of landmark shows and a brand new guest host. 

BUG 42 takes place on April 24th at 6.30 and 8.45pm, another bi-monthly round-up of the best work in global music video creativity, as curated by the BUG team. Not only do the shows mark BUG's seventh anniversary, since the first BUG show in April 2007, they will be the 99th and 100th BUG shows at the BFI Southbank.

And BUG 42 will be hosted by comedian, actor and presenter Jeff Leach – the second guest host to fill in for regular BUG host Adam Buxton as he takes a sabbatical from the show during 2014. A versatile character actor who writes and directs (and also has a background as a music producer) Jeff has appeared on comedy, panel game and entertainment shows on BBC3, E4 and Channel 5, including Big Brother's Bit On The Side, as well as regularly appearing on sketches on the Funny Or Die? website. He takes over from Doc Brown, who presented BUG 41 with distinction in February. 

Furthermore, at BUG 42 BUG unveils a brand new BUG logo and branding designed by Paul Greeno from Limited Edition Design – with a new title animation sequence based on Paul Greeno's custom-made insect creations, produced by BUG's Phil Tidy. 

Some tickets are still available for the BUG 42 shows on April 24th. You can book seats via the BFI website, or by calling the box office on 020 7928 3232.
