Newsroom Day One ain’t pretty for the uninitiated but don’t worry, help is at hand. Over the next few days, we’ll walk you through the socialites, sociopaths and just plain normal – yep, that’s Frank, former fleet manager now in Circulation, but that’s yer lot – that inhabit the psychiatric ward masquerading as an office.
