Series 4, Episode 3

Charlie looks at the TV career ladder in an attempt to show people a job in the TV industry isn't as glamorous as it looks. Street Doctor gets a bashing too. Plus, Brooker's war against the squeezing of end credits continues.


The credits for this episode were played out immediately at the start of the programme - with a short spoof programme proceeding them (A History Of Corners with Victoria Coren) before Screenwipe continued. This was to make a point about the demise of 'proper end credits'.
