On TV, the newsmagazine show, The Eleventh Hour, has made a name for itself for insightful news stories. In this series, we see follow the efforts of the journalists as they struggle to investigate their stories.

This serial is a real winner, a five star series. A must see for everyone who wants first grade entertainment. It explores thought provoking issues about the medium of television and of the making of investigative journalism. the Eleventh Hour gives great insights to the behind the screen of television. This is "Broadcast News" in a serial. In a world where we consume so much news on television, it gives a very good look at its production. It gives a look at the temptation of fame. Of the want to do a god job. It is first and foremost about the great responsibility of good journalism. A must see!!! I give it a full five star!!!
