Freelancer Appeal, Top Gear Rested & TikTok Pranks

Who’d work in TV? With reports of lowering safety standards and financial hardship are on the rise, I speak to Marcus Ryder MBE about a new Christmas appeal by the Film and TV Charity.

Also on the programme: Top Gear is being rested by the BBC – but for how long? Writer Scott Bryan and Charlotte Tobitt (Press Gazette) consider the protections needed to make the car show viable again.

All that plus we follow the latest twists and turns of the Telegraph sale, TikTok pranks that went too far… and, in The Media Quiz, we guess the biggest winners of the week.
