Spitting Image: The Complete Series 10

BAFTA-nominated many times, Spitting Image won a Bronze medal at the Montreux TV festival in 1984, firmly establishing its success for over a decade; this set features the combined vocal talents of Chris Barrie, Roger Blake, Steve Coogan, Hugh Dennis, Steve Nallon and Kate Robbins.
This tenth series features the serialised story of The Making of Major; Dimbleby reports from the Gulf, while George Bush asks Stormin' Norman to make the situation in Iraq more complicated.
