5. The Newsreader

Thursday 9th November at 9pm on BBC Two


Hit Australian drama The Newsreader returns to BBC Two this week as Anna Torv and Sam Reid return alongside new cast members Daniel Gillies and Rory Fleck Byrne.


Created, written and produced by Michael Lucas, the second series picks up a year on from the events of series one where Helen Norville and Dale Jennings are now established as ‘The Golden Couple of News’. To the outside world, they present a glowing image of success and romance. But the truth is more complex.


Dale, although still honing his craft, has proved himself a steady and reliable co-anchor to Helen which impresses the new young CEO, Charlie Tate (Daniel Gillies), who has a very clear vision of the style of news he would like to see at ‘News at Six’. Conversely, Helen’s mission to pursue and champion hard-hitting, uncompromising interviews has her at loggerheads with the new CEO…and she isn’t afraid to tell him what she thinks of his plans for the programme.

As 1987 rolls along, global stocks will soar and crash, Australia will prepare to celebrate its Bicentennial year, and Helen and Dale grapple with who they really want to be in life – and whether that path can be together.
