In Lumet’s increasingly prescient satire, veteran newscaster Howard Beale is informed by his ratings-driven network executives that he is to be dumped because he "skews old" - in turn, he uses his next broadcast to announce that he is going to commit suicide on his final programme.

An ambitious programming executive convinces her superiors to let the broadcast go ahead, hoping that the final event will give the network its greatest ratings ever.

Screening as part of Sidney Lumet Centenary, a season of films by one of the most prominent directors of the New Hollywood movement to mark 100 years since his birth.
