Spitting Image - Series 8 (DVD)
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.
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.
