The Day Today

This hilarious spoof news broadcast was among the items I bought with my Christmas money. What’s truly frightening is that only the fashion dates it – television is just as banal and irritating nearly 20 years on. Created by comedians Chris Morris and Armando Ianucci, it started out as a radio show called On The Hour before being adapted for television.



What I most remember is the spot-on parody of MTV. Even though the music has moved on, the stereotypes are still just as wryly accurate now.
