A TV version of the 1980s radio series Radio Active which lampooned commercial radio stations.

The cast now turned their attention to the field of satellite television – in particular, the newly-launched Sky TV – targeting crass chat shows and banal game shows, replete with shameless advertising and terrible presenters.

The series charted the rise of the station from its launch (which was postponed almost a year) through highlights such as ‘Brown Nose Day’, Talking Head (a show about sex), the striptease game Gettem Off!, a pop show hosted by Ernie Wise and Eddie The Eagle, and The Sexciting Sixties, a trip down memory lane which ended with a documentary on ‘Woodstock 3’, starring Neil Young, Bob Dylan and Frank Sinatra.
