The staff of Globelink News are to be the stars of a docusoap, whether they like it or not. As they fend off hand-held cameras, they discover their futures are in doubt. Especially now Sir Roysten's son is coming.
Globelink is seized by rumours after the announcement of job cuts. In a frantic bid to up the ratings, Gus launches a dumbed-down news. Henry and Dave launch themselves on an even dumber weather girl while George befriends a badger and Damien tangles with something bigger.
Gus is in denial about the imminent demise of Globelink. Helen wrestles with single motherhood and her sexuality, while Sally tries to discover the secret of eternal youth and Joy finds a dope for some drug-testing.
