A TV version of the 1980s radio series "Radio Active" which lampooned commercial radio stations. The characters from Radio Active moved to the then-new field of satellite TV.

The show's graphic design, music, and fictional programming content was a clear pastiche of what was, at the time, a relatively low-budget new satellite broadcasting service "Sky". Rare examples of actual Sky programming from the same period can be found online. By 2019, the Sky (UK & Ireland) range of channels were spending hundreds of millions of pounds on big budget original programming.
