Newswipe with Charlie Brooker - Series 1 (2009)
Newswipe with Charlie Brooker is a British news review programme written and presented by Charlie Brooker and broadcast on BBC Four . It is similar to Brooker's Screenwipe series and this first series contains six episodes which ran between 25 March 2009 and 29 April 2009.
The aim of Newswipe is to expose the inner workings of news media, just as Screenwipe does to television in general. The series is a comic, thoughtful and scabrous digest of recent news events. Newswipe also looks at the brilliant or preposterous way the news is presented to the public. Experts are also on hand to pick apart certain stories and analyse the news media's obsessions. Charlie Brooker comments: "This is new territory for me: I'm no current affairs expert. Just like, I suspect, many people, when I tune into the news I often feel like I've wandered into episode 389 of the world's most complex soap opera. So it's also about me trying to make sense of a bewildering and often bloody stupid world".
Props go out to geclipse for originally capping the series.
