Plot Summary

An episodic satire of the political and social status of Italy in the seventies, through the shows of one day of a television channel. An English language lesson turns into a killing of a black dignitary of an embassy by a CIA agent and then into his own killing by another colleague. In a television film, the police are befooled by a fake bomb and put a real one in order not to be derided by the public. In a film inquisition show, the bishop of Naples speaks highly of the importance of the family, but a child who lives a miserable family life kills himself. In the debate that follows it is proposed that they should eat the children, as Swift had said. In the next episode, a general who is in the toilet is called for the NATO parade, but the flasher breaks and in his effort to fix it, he dirts allover and kills himself. In a children's show an inspector finds excuses and delays the arrest of a powerful man. In an inquiry a pensioner is happy with his petty pension, but cries when he hears the word 'fillet'. In a quiz show there is a contest for misery. In Pope's elections Cardinals kill each other's voters and finally they decide to elect temporarily an ill cardinal, but once he is elected, he reveals his authoritarian face. Through the news and advertisements between shows a number of other issues are satirized. Written by Alkistis Zografou
