With the press and phone hacking controversy never far from the public's mind Press Ganged tells of a raw recruit setting out on a journalistic career in the 1960s in a same-but-very-different atmosphere from that of the 21st century.
The stories covered are fictional, loosely based on personal experience, ranging from defying the Ministry of Defence to probing the occult, uncovering sleeze in high places to monitoring progress of an airport extension protest, and generally being present at people's joyous and tragic moments.
The headlines might not always tell it as it was.The whole is told against a background of life in the computer-
and-mobile- phone-free newsroom with a cast of news gatherers, supervised by an early version of
Mr. Murdoch, and their personal stories.
