An Insightful Series into the nature of Canadian TV Journalism
25 April 2003 | by Ken-120See all my reviews

As short lived as this series appears to be due to government fund budget cuts, it has still been pleasure seeing this wonderful series.

This series is the best qualities of the feature film, The Insider, put to TV. In seeing the struggles of a crusading TV newsmagazine, we see the dramatic presentation of the same kind of battle of journalist integrity of the reporters vs. financial expediency on the part of management. Put into a Canadian context, this series gives me, a Canadian, a perspective into our nation's media reality even if it is through the prism of fiction.

This series has real value in Canadian TV and its loss will be grevious.
