Behind the Headlines

Show Summary

Behind the Headlines is a political talk show that originally aired on BBC from 1990 to 1993. It appeared on weekdays, and each episode has a length of 30 minutes. Jane Corbin is the presenter for this series. Corbin hosts a round-table discussion with politicians and journalists on a variety of topics, primarily politics. She uses her own experience as a political journalist to guide the discussion through this complex subject. Specific topics include a debate of political controversies for the week with series regulars Paul Boateng and Jeffery Archer. Panelist Beverly Anderson leads discussions on social issues and the arts. Loyd Grossman and Robert Robinson examine trends and popular culture. Celebrities also appear on the show occasionally, including Peter Cushing in a 1992 episode. Cushing was a celebrated British actor who largely retired in 1989. His public appearance on the show was a rare event that produced a strong spike in the show's ratings for that week.
