W1A - skewering bureaucracy, but establishment let off lightly

Issue No. 2396

This spin-off of spoof Olympics documentary Twenty Twelve takes on the BBC. There’s fun skewering of bureaucracy’s love of jargon, particularly from narrator David Tennant, and of petty workplace tyrants.

But W1A might be letting a scandal-ridden institution of the establishment off too lightly. The first episode even pokes fun at those who speak out about discrimination.

W1A, BBC2, Wednesdays at 10pm, and BBC iPlayer
