Newswipe With Charlie Brooker. Charlie Brooker. Copyright: Zeppotron
Charlie Brooker takes a look at how graphics have morphed over the years from modest explaining devices to shouty, scary, video game-style extravaganzas. With the help of Nick Davies and Peter Oborne, he also looks at how print newspapers are changing and the underhand tactics they use to get some of their stories. There's also just time for a Susan Boyle rant.
