The Open University and Channel 4 "Mushy and Mr Burton" by Sassy Films

The Open University has unveiled an ad campaign with Channel 4 starring Musharaf "Mushy" Asgha and Mr (Matt) Burton from Educating Yorkshire.

The two characters were standouts from the documentary series, in which Mr Burton helped Mushy overcome his stutter and achieve the grade he needed in his English GCSE. The campaign, which launches tonight during Educating Greater Manchester, features the pair alongside three former students who share their own inspirational stories. Produced by Sassy Films and brokered by 4Sales and MediaCom, this is the latest on-air activity in a six-month partnership between Channel 4 and The Open University that launched earlier this year.
