Newsworthy is an audio series about media wars, relationships, careers and life choices in a post-modernist world, set in contemporary London during the Spring/Summer of 2021. The main characters from each news channel are ambitious to get their voices heard and win the hearts and minds of the great British public.
One channel represents innovative, grassroots investigative journalism. The other channel, equipped with big budgets and slick production values, focuses on boosting ratings with a news-lite, entertainment-centric approach. Which one wins?
The story explores universal themes of enthusiasm and cynicism, new careers and job loss, youth and ageing, loyalty and betrayal, plain-speaking and obfuscation, friendships and false friends - all with a light, comedic tone.
