Series 1, Episode 2

More carnage in the cutting room. Hot from the editing suite comes the archive show with its firm pledge; the words remain the same, only their order has changed. Re-dubbed, re-cut, re-mixed, re-shot, re-worked, re-touched, welcome back to another half hour of cannibalised television.
