Spitting Image - Series 10 (DVD)
ITV's classic satirical puppet show. No target was sacred; Margaret Thatcher and her cabinet, the opposition, the Liberals, Ronald Reagan, the Pope and the Royal Family could all find themselves up for a painful ribbing on any given programme.
This series features John Major and the Adventures of Sad Man; Dimbleby reports from the Gulf, while George Bush asks Stormin' Norman to make the situation in Iraq more complicated and Saddam is too busy to turn up for his War Crimes trial. Mick Jagger offers Kylie sartorial advice, and Robert Runcie meets the son of God – David of Icke...
The award-winning, critically acclaimed, 1980s satire took no prisoners, cruelly lampooning politicians of all parties but reserving special venom for Thatcher and her ministers, notably a bovver-boy Norman Tebbit, a bumbling Geoffrey Howe and a wild, gung-ho Michael Heseltine! The show also targeted the royal family – Charles was shown as a blundering crackpot, Diana a vain airhead and the Queen Mother a horseracing-obsessed alcoholic.
