Summary

It's time to tell our story, starting when my new friends and colleagues-to-be were all as fresh, young and wet behind the ears as I was myself. When our hearts were open, and our integrity was still intact.'
Rhiannon dreams of joining the largest broadcaster in the world: the BBC. And so begins a life of highs, lows, and absurd experiences for five ambitious young people, all keen to make it in the increasingly commercial world of television.

Caught in the middle between art and commerce, Rhiannon realises the industry is transforming around her. During one of the most dramatic periods of change in its history, aspiration, desperation and clashes of ego threaten to destroy the Corporation altogether.

A story of artistic expression vs corporate gain, of how some people make a drama out of a crisis, and others a crisis out of a drama.
