A ridiculous and worthless precis of British Culture.
10 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

As 'News' or 'Documentary' this programme is absolutely WORTHLESS.

However, as Propaganda - it's the equivalent of 'Lord Haw-Haw' radio broadcasts during the 2nd world war.

It's sheer inability to convey true information is pretty much unparalleled, within its 30 minute boundaries, yet it still manages to push across the ideals and idea's of its masters.

If, you really want to consider a 'fact' as truth - watch this sh*t and choose the opposite.
