Alternative performances

Standard news greeting. Investigative journalism has decided to take the brave leap of investigating the media by the means of investigative journalism. I'm a journalist. I'm white, middle class and was raised in the Home Counties. No surprises there. Today, On the Line: how one article can ruin a reputation, change a dream and force a man to build a wall around his town to protect himself from the invasion of immigrants. Three interviewees. A lot of facts. And a third very important factor.

The show...

Our Edinburgh show, On The Line: Media, will follow the structure of a news broadcast programme and takes a look behind the iron curtain of mass media. It will take a similar form to some of our videos, such as On the Line: Multiculturalism, On the Line: Free Range, which you can find below. Our show is simple but ambitious and we really feel that we bring something different to the table as our political satire fills a gap in the current comedy market and looks to make political issues accessible for a younger generations.
