Banksy's One Nation Under CCTV was one of many digs aimed at Big Brother. This piece, however, is memorable for the way Banksy pulled off the stunt. The Royal Mail granted permission for the creation of an enormous piece on the wall within the Post Office yard on Newman Street, without knowing what the work would look like. Scaffolding was constructed, reaching multiple stories and standing for a large portion of the week.
Much to the surprise of the Royal Mail and surrounding residents, the scaffolding would be removed to unveil the message "One Nation Under CCTV." The piece shows a young boy on the sixth rung of a tall ladder, rolling out the block lettering. To the left of the subject is a police officer and watchdog. The piece was seen as a bold statement against CCTV, perfectly placed directly to the left of a number of closed-circuit cameras. The work was later painted over.
