An hilarious parody of television new bulletins.

The News features a television newsreader who recounts the minutiae of small-town life with due solemnity, but reveals a disturbing element of anarchic behavious amongst the town’s old-age pensioners.

Filmed on colour videotape and produced at Aidanvision Studios in Carlisle along with In the Home, the artist explores the conventions of television studio production by focusing on two aspects of the medium: the television play and the television news.
