Rated TBC by the BBFC


An investigative reporter (Matt Frewer) insists on following up a story about `blipverts', compressed adverts used by a powerful television corporation determined to win the ratings war. Exposure of the side effects of blipverts (they kill couch potatoes) will ruin the corporation so the reporter has to go - but his show is also a ratings winner. The boy genius who created blipverts sets about making a computer-generated replacement.
