Synopsis

American newsreader Howard Beale has had enough - after being sacked for being too old and drinking too much, he flips in his final live broadcast. But quick to spot a good story, the TV network decide to re-hire the clearly disturbed Beale, now a 'mad prophet' celebrity. Beale's 1970s tale satirises TV companies' ruthlessness and obsession with ratings, to the point where even Beale's TV producer lover Diana has a one minute sexual attention span - and it rings truer now than ever.
