Charlie Brooker's Screenwipe

BBC Four factual. 29 episodes (5 series), 2006 - 2009. Features Charlie Brooker and Al Campbell.

Series 5, Episode 1

Charlie Brooker admits he is probably well on the way to being the worst TV presenter audiences have ever seen. He decides to discover what a TV presenter is anyway. Plus, Brooker examines the state of television in the current economic climate.

Further details

Charlie Brooker takes an irreverent look at all aspects of life on the small screen, including capsule reviews of the week's highs and lows.

He examines the state of television in the current economic climate and, with now-redundant home sale programmes clogging up the schedule, he explores what we can expect in their place.

Expensive dramas and the plethora of job-based shows are also in his sights, while there is light relief as he illustrates the penny-pinching tricks TV uses to meet budgets.
