Following on from radio news satire On The Hour, The Day Today satirised the way TV news was broadcast.
Presented by Christopher Morris, the programme reported on all the top stories, from a US criminal being executed while dressed as Elvis, to the IRA planting bombs in dogs, to reporting live from a war which Morris himself started.
Alongside Morris are a team of correspondents, including jargon-spouting business reporter Collaterlie Sisters, the disembodied head of weather forecaster Sylvester Stuart, incompetent economic correspondent Peter O'Hanraha-Hanrahan, pun-loaded American reporter Barbara Wintergreen, and debuting on TV is the sports correspondent who seemingly knows nothing about sport: Alan Partridge.
- Music in the show performed by Jonathan Whitehead and Chris Morris.
