Sharp, fresh and highly entertaining, Bits burst onto the 4later strand on English Channel 4 in 1999. Fronted by 3 women, its remit is to review the best (and worst) of the new crop of games each week on all platforms, from PC to Dreamcast. In 2000 a change of Presenters brought Emily Booth (a small cult in her own right after starring in such B movies as 'Pervirella') provided a more balanced and focused show that has been improving ever since. Due to its time slot, unusual review style (its unusual for a show to go by without them murdering each other horribly atleast once), production values (non existant) and the charisma of the presenters the show has developed into something of a cult. Already in its 5th series after 3 years, Bits is one of the best programs on British TV today, monumentally better than most of the stuff broadcast primetime by the major networks and long may it remain so.
