A damn fine job, brilliant!
Hi, This is a fantastic satire on spin and th 'real' power behind popular news stories of the day. British irony at its best. Wickedly funny. Stephen Fry is at his best portraying Charles Prentiss and the script is far above the cheap humour seen on other comedy series, though some might find it a bit too high-brow.

There were 2 runs of this show one in autumn/winter 2003 and then in summer 2005.

PS - For those who like these kind of media based cynicism would also like "Trevor's World of Sport" another BBC comedy to feature around the same time starring Neil Pearson and Paul Reynolds.

Both shows at their heart are about (comic) observations of a crazy world that feature an ironic pair as bosses, one controlling manipulative and the other bumbling, meek work to look forward to retire.
