Product description

Product Description

Spoof news show featuring Sports Reporter Alan Partridge and Anchorman Chris Morris. This video contains footage of a helicopter being flown at the heads of small children by a dog, an American man being electrocuted while dressed as Elvis, music news of gangsta rapper FUR Q, coverage of the constitutional crisis that followed John Major's fight with the Queen, and an interview with a swimming pool attendant.

From Amazon.co.uk

Fact me till I fart, it's The Day Today, the most outrageously satirical show ever to feature a man called Chris Morris--until Brass Eye, that is. Morris really hates the media: he loathes it, he despises it. Both savage and surreal, The Day Today heaps great steaming mounds of abuse and scorn upon our self-appointed moral guardians, upon pompous pundits, puerile newspaper headline-writers and vacuous, self-important TV presenters. And they all richly deserve it. The show's format is Newsnight-meets-Crimewatch in Hell. A ridiculously protracted title sequence and melodramatic headline announcements are just the beginning. Like a demented Jeremy Paxman, Morris' anchorman simpers to the viewers while castigating on-air his useless reporter Peter O'Hanraha'hanrahan; the vacant Collatallie Sisters turns financial news into a dadaist nightmare of meaningless statistics, graphically illustrated by the currency cat or the finance arse; while American journo Barbara Wintergreen's reports from Death Row are just scary and absurd enough to be completely believable. Also making his TV debut here is Steve Coogan's legendary sportscaster Alan Partridge, with his appalled and appalling sports reporting, his cringe-inducing misunderstandings and his sheer blunt-headed stupidity. Behind the scenes, sketches such as the spoof soap "The Bureau" and the spoof docu-soap "The Pool" betray the writing skills of Graham Linehan and Arthur Matthews, creators of Father Ted. Subsequent media hysteria about Chris Morris' shocking satire has only made The Day Today look even more frighteningly relevant than when it was first broadcast in 1994.

Tape One has the first three shows from the series, including the live execution in the style of Elvis (gorging on burgers while on the loo), gangsta rapper Fur Q's "Uzi Lover", and John Major's punch-up with the Queen. In summary: breezes. --Mark Walker
