Description

Originally aired at ABC TV, PRESS GANG was a BAFTA Award-winning series chronicling the world of youth newspaper the Junior Gazette, run by high school students in the fictional city of Norbridge. “In certain circles, Press Gang creator Steven Moffat is a god. The sole writer of the show's 43 episodes, he recently admitted that even 12 years after its demise, he is still showered with praise for what was his first gig writing for TV. ‘When I'm talking to someone about the right age,’ Moffat told BBC1 in December, ‘and they ask what I've written, and I mention Press Gang, suddenly I'm a hero’… …What is it about Press Gang that, to this day, elicits such fawning? Imagine a teenage version of Moonlighting (1985) by way of All the President's Men (1976), with a hint of The Hardy Boys (1977), and you're halfway towards describing this award-winning series about a motley bunch of students running a youth newspaper. Considered ground-breaking in its day for tackling issues such as teen suicide, sexual abuse, adultery, and drug addiction over the course of its five-year run, the show is renowned in its native U.K. for doing something kid television at the time didn't do (and, arguably, still doesn't): it refused to treat its audience like children.” Please note: Product from this supplier may not be shrink-wrapped.
