Series 7 - 100 Years Of The BBC

Jon Holmes's multi award winning The Skewer twists itself into the past, as it sets about dismantling 100 years of the BBC. The archive is plundered, the BBC's history is revisited, and it's all cut up and smashed about via The Skewer's no holds-barred and unforgiving approach.
