Written by political satirist Tom Scott, Press for Service is a humorous take on parliamentary reporters battling with the Prime Minister over journalistic freedom. Featuring the idealism, sleaze and alcoholism so often associated with the job, the teleplay follows David Miller (Richard Poore), as he writes a damning piece, but forgets to check his sources. The teleplay opens and closes with John Toon's elegant aerial shots of Wellington, and a buoyant score. Also featured are Gliding On actors Ray Henwood and Ross Jolly. Press for Service spawned a short-lived series.
I hate lists and he loves complaining. Merely by ignoring his directives it will make us both happy.– David Miller (Richard Poore)
