Chris Morris & Armando Iannucci - The Day Today

News, Gallery 1

The satirical news-programme, The Day Today was first broadcast on the BBC in January 1994, a neo-dada comedy lambasting, lampooning, satirising, chastising and ripping to shreds TV news-media. The star of the series was Chris Morris, an established 'media terrorist'. Armando Iannucci, the producer, gathered a stable of players together to produce what has become a seminal critique of modern media madness.
