The entire news show featuring Sports Reporter Alan Partridge and Anchorman Chris Morris. Part 1 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. Whilst Part 2 contains graphic footage of exploding dogs, police eating suspects, masses of war, homeless people being clamped, clips from a soap opera broadcast from the back of a lorry and a world cup machine that explains the rounds of the world cup simply with a mechanical device like a diagram that points.
The seminal Chris Morris vehicle, which unleashed his fabulous comic genius into the world at large (and spawned Alan Partridge to boot).
This is satire at its best, and although it has dated to some degree (well, it wasn't made yesterday after all) it retains its humour and individuality. There are some sketches that are verging on the edges of outrage (BBC2's Morality Night) bit quite frankly I'd feel a bit short changed if Morris didn't veer rather close to the edge.
This series lead on eventually to the equally brilliant Brass Eye and Jam.
Arrived promptly after ordering. A humorous take on the way today's news is presented with over the top dramatic music incorporating delays bad timing, lying and inappropriate views and often rude to those interviewed.
