Journalism gets Groovy

Every year the BBC’s main newsreaders put on a dance extravaganza for Children in Need. This year, Susanna Reid, Fiona Bruce, Sophie Raworth and Kate Sliverton performed a series of Lady Gaga hits in some suitably outlandish costumes.


In the past, the BBC newsreaders have performed parodies of Queen, ABBA and James Bond, to name just a few. Not only are these sketches a real laugh, but it’s a chance for the newsreaders (admittedly, mostly the females one) to show that behind their unflinching daytime personas, there’s a whole lot more to them.

    When I saw this video, the first thing I thought was "this is something Japanese TV would do." Definitely don't see many parodies like this stateside except for SNL and other comedy groups. Looked like they were definitely enjoying it as well. Where's the meat dress though?

    Nope, we would get this on Fox News or CNN.

    Almost spilt my sides watching. Ah, gotta love those BBC News birds. They’ve got game.
