Charlie Brooker started his career writing video game reviews before he went on to become a TV critic. He’s written and presented two successful TV series, Screenwipe and Newswipe, which pulled apart the news and what we watch on TV. But he’s best known as being the creator and writer of the hugely successful Black Mirror series, which looks at our unease with technology and has attracted some huge names. Series 5 is no different: Miley Cyrus is part of the cast. Charlie Brooker came into the Beyond Today studio to talk about his new series. He also touched on porn, phone addiction and what he thinks of Boris Johnson as a comic character. Producers: Philly Beaumont, Jaja Muhammad and Lucy Hancock. Mixed by: Weidong Lin Editor: John Shields
