- Well, go on then, turn it on.

- Yeah.

Come on, hotshot director.

Turn it on.

- Yeah...

- I think it is on.


- Hey!

-Happy birthday, lovely.

- Yeah. Watch out, Steven Spielberg. My

little sister is coming to get you!

- It's what you wanted.

- Mom, it's perfect.

- Come on, then. What's your

first report gonna be?

- Uh...

- Come on...

- Come on! - Okay.

My name is Chloe Murdock.

I am reporting live from my living room

with my mad, stupid, beautiful family.

-Happy birthday!

-Let me film it.

-Blow out the candles.


-Happy birthday, darling. Good cake.

-Yummy. Happy birthday!

-Have you got enough cake there?


- This is Chloe Murdock,

reporting on the

sleeping habits of

an off-duty nurse.

Hold on. I think we have movement.

In the wild, the off-duty nurse is

capable of sleeping for days at a time!

-I wish!

- Here we have it,

ladies and gentlemen, a

rare sighting of the

lesser spotted nurse.

-Some privacy here?


Oh my god! You haven't actually

got someone under there?


This is Chloe Murdock,

reporting on the

loose morals of an

off-duty nurse.

-Shh! he's sleeping.

-Dad is going... to kill you.

Oh my god, is it Dan?

Oh my gosh, finally...

-No, it is not Dan.

-Well then, who is it, then?

- Do you really wanna see?

- Uh, yes!

- Are you ready for the big scoop?

- Yes.

- Okay, but be cool, yeah?


this one's really special to me.

- Come on!

- Are you ready?



- Do you want to know why

they call me the big cat?

-Where are we going today, mum?

- Today, my sixteen year-old daughter Chloe

is giving blood for the first time.

And will this procedure hurt?

The pain will be extreme.

She may not make it. - Mum!

No... no, seriously, will it?

- Every bit!

- Turn the car around, quick!

- My daughter has rather rare blood.

- Mum...

-Which is why the pain will be worth it.

- That's not the only amazing

thing about her, actually.

She also has very big feet and can

touch her nose with her tongue.

-Cut! Cut!

- We are getting

unconfirmed reports of an

extremely large explosion

in the Hungerford area,

Possibly military in origin.

A complete media blackout of

the area has been imposed.

P.C. Terry Morgan who was

the first at the scene,

has described lightning hitting the

old factory on the outskirts of town.

In other news...

- Has anyone seen my keys?

- Mum, there's something

weird going on in the news.

-Keys... I'm going to be late.

- There... there's been an explosion.

No one know's what's going on.

- Listen, I don't think

you should go to work.

- What?

- Just call in sick.

- Look, I am not missing the

Wednesday sales meeting

because of some explosion

halfway across the country.

Look, I love my family,

but they worry too much.

I will be back later with pizza.


- Five foot seven and

she's got blonde hair.

No... n... never!

She's not answering her phone!

Look... look, alright?

Yeah. I understand,

okay? I understand how

busy you are, but...

But if you hear anything... okay?

Just... just call.


Are you okay?

-Yeah, I'm fine.

-Where's mum?

-She's on her way home.

- W... was that the police?

- Chloe, just...

just leave it, okay?

She'll be fine.

She'll be fine, she'll be fine.

Just be something on the trains.

-You're just buying pizza now.

No pepperoni for Sam.

Probably choosing fruit juice

instead of fizzy drinks, as always.


Dad says she'll be

back any minute.

But there's all these attacks and

people want us to look outdoors and...

but you have your key, so it's okay.
