Welcome to the Globelink News team, primed and ready to bring you the latest news...somehow. Under the ineffective management of Gus, the team bicker, fight, tease, gamble and mock their way through the day's news. Their professional rivalries and domestic traumas are laid bare on the floor of the newsroom. Episodes were recorded close to transmission, to make use of contemporary news events, thus giving the programme a greater sense of realism. Created by Andy Hamilton and Guy Jenkin, the series had an ensemble cast, making stars of Haydn Gwynne, Stephen Tompkinson and Neil Pearson.
