Featuring all of the episodes from the first season of this multi-award winning British sitcom. As a sitcom it was more than unusual in that the show`s final shooting script was finalised at the last possible moment to ensure maximum topicality of its famously biting satire. Broadcast at a time when television news was at the top of the government of the day`s hitlist, it`s televisual bravery was only matched by it`s writing, direction and acting.
Based in the offices of `Globelink News`, where the bosses want their news coverage to be as advertiser-friendly as possible, much to the chagrin of the jaded reporters who react to their bosses pronouncements with a cynical eye and an acid comment, often cleverly placed into the news show being put out that night.

Episodes:- `A News Dawn`, `Sally`s Arrival`, `A Clash of Interests`, `A Blast from the Past`, `Old Father Time`, `Special Branch Raid the Newsroom`, `The Root of All Evil`, `Death, Disaster `n` Damien`, `The New Approach` and `The Big Day`.

Special Features:
The previously unaired pilot with an introduction from the writers/producers Andy Hamilton and Guy Jenkins, Introduction to Series 1 from Andy Hamilton and Guy Jenkins, Outtakes, Interviews with members of the cast, Deleted scenes, Bloopers, Stills gallery
