Politics is the game and power is the prize. A provocative glimpse of how media experts have replaced the old party bosses and the press as the movers and shakers of politics in the 1980s. Most importantly, he offers viewers a portrait of what power does to those who wield it and how it changes them and those they control. Pete St John is the hotshot media consultant who sells his services to the highest bidder, only to learn the dangers of pursuing and having too much political power.
