This series was one of the best comedys of the early 1990's and is still just as funny some ten years on. It centres around GlobeLink news which is one of the then new digital broadcasters of 24 hr news. The writing and acting from the brilliant cast is first rate and no politician was safe. From the last days of the Thatcher government to the dreary John Major all are sent up in this great comedy. There is Dave played by Neil Pearson who is the office ladies man and will bed and bet anything that moves. There's Damian Day who's the fearless reporter , but he will do anything to get the story including setting the whole situation up !. Not forgetting Globelink Boss Guss Hedges who sucks up to the Globelink owner Sir Royston Merchant. Sir Royston is modelled after Rupert Murdoch to great effect, but is never seen on the series. All in all this is a great series and the Dvd has extras included such as interviews with the writers and stars of the show.
