A documentary about "Spitting Image" (1984) and the impact it had, including clips of the most memorable moments and contributions from many of the cast, crew and some of celebrities portrayed on the show.
It started in 1984 and ended in 1996, and is still remembered as one of the best impression and puppet shows on television. This programme reflected people's opinion of the programme, and the best moments from the best latex puppets. Hosting this programme were two new creations made especially, Ant & Dec! This programme had contributions from the stars of the programme, Jon Culshaw (also voicing Ant, with Phil Cornwell as Dec), Ian Hislop, Harry Enfield and Alistair McGowan . It also had contributions from fans, and people who were impersonated, including: John Lloyd, Lord Neil Kinnock, Edwina Currie, David Baddiel, Lord Roy Hattersley, Sir Trevor McDonald, Desmond Lynam, Paul Daniels, Barry Norman, David Steel, Louise Gold, Chris Eubank and Bob Geldof. If you weren't on Spitting Image, you were pretty much a nobody, and even the people who didn't want to be on there (e.g. the fantastic Margaret Thatcher puppet) were on it. Whatever people thought of it, and the dreadful Chicken Song, it still remains a legend on TV. Very good!
