no Colbert or Morris, 10 October 2011
Author: J ( from UK

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This broad-gram features a selection of televisual satirists talking about what they do. It is interesting what the selected interviewees say. Frost reiterates a few simple questions such as "can satire change the world?". The BBC claims this is an "investigation into the power of political satire". I would describe it as a self-congratulatory establishment pat on the back for David Frost and a selection of media personalities that came after him.

Sadly there is no mention of Chris Morris or Stephen Colbert clearly the two most important satirists of modern times. Colbert is great. Check out his historic 2006 white house correspondents dinner performance.
