Series 1, Episode 6

Another week, another barrowload of archive as Don't Watch That Watch This introduces you to the inside of the Queen's carriage, the best ever Mastermind candidate, Geoff Hoon's misuse of the office photocopier, a Punch & Judy reconstruction for the CBBC version of Crimewatch, and another collection of cut 'n' paste speeches from the rich and famous. All the words are genuine, it's just the order they come in that may not be.
