Series 1 Summary

Investigative reporter Chris Morris puts modern Britain under the spotlight, and smacks the issues of the day till they bleed.

The proliferation of cruel anti-cow graffiti, with text specifically designed to undermine the animals' confidence, and a spate of arranged fights between large men and weasels indicate a deep malaise at the heart of society.

Drug use is rife - people have turned to smoking cracks - whilst a new narcotic called 'Cake' threatens the welfare of the entire nation.

The moral-o-meter is now reading less than two morals per head. Things are looking serious.
