A satirical comedy series that looks at the lighter side of the news of the week. Hosted in the UK by legendary news anchor Sir Trevor McDonald, who delivers his top stories with his own inimitable style, inviting his News Knight team (which includes a permanent well known comedian and two other comic guest) to comment on their chosen stories from the week's news. Interspersed with the three top stories are strands from the absurd outer reaches of the news spectrum, all headlined with titles that satirise the growing trend for sensationalism in broadcast news (such as "Young people are idiots" and "Gay or Blind?").
