False Dawn


A sketch I wrote for comedian Helen Bauer and comedy channel anewsthought. Tying in with the Dawn Rescue film and website, Helen plays Bryony Ditty, (sister of Matthew in Dawn Rescue) equalites and diversity co-ordinator at CBeebies, but hoping to land herself a plum job at Newsnight or Panorama by doing an invesitigative report into her brother’s organisation. Jack McMahon plays Declan and Louise Bastock also appears as an animator.

It formed the inspiration for the comedy web series Equality & Diversity, featuring the same characters.
