You don’t need to repeat what worked in the past. It can just be and you can enjoy it for what it was years after the event. I don’t care if there’s ever a political situation that will ever need to be satirised for it’s blatant flaws as well as The Day Today. This programme was brilliant at sending up the news entertainment deal. Seeing this compilation reminds me of just how funny it was and the greatest irony is that after the programme came off the air there seems to be an upsurge in news broadcasts taking on a more entertainment feel to it, not so much interested in what the substance of the news is or even its validity more as to it’s ability to appeal.
