Synopsis:
After years of conflict, the civil war in the African nation of Karibu comes under the fickle spotlight of the Western media. The corrupt President Kubwasana will now be featured nightly, at least until there is a better story elsewhere... For Harry Chambers, the local BBC stringer, it's his big break. That is until the London newsroom despatches its own team, led by the BBC's egotistical foreign editor David Bradburn (Martin Jarvis). Joining David's team is the hard-nosed, long suffering producer Jane (Doon Mackichan) who has the near impossible job of organising David, the cameramen Jack and Rory, irritably-bowelled Margaret from the World Service, and some friendly locals.
If only all would go to plan then they'd be on for the best story of their lives. Of course, there are a few minor obstacles: the desperately uninterested London desk producers; all-action American star reporter, Candida Colter; the BBC's Brussels Correspondent who's muscling in on their story, and the small matter of people shooting at you in a strange country!
