Further details

DWTWT returns to turn the spotlight on TV and see what happens when the words and pictures don't quite fit. Or do they?

Peter Reid takes charge of a crown green bowling team for a day, Delia is in trouble in the kitchen, Tony Blair tells America what he really thinks, and David Dimbleby's viewing habits seems a little strange.

Weird, wonderful, irreverent, fun as the team of footage fakers emerge from the edit to show us their wares.
