Network archiveNetwork is the story of newsreader Howard Beale who becomes disenfranchised with the way that proper 'news' is being made into a circus. After being fired following ailing ratings, Beale's desperation leads him to deliver the rant of his career, threatening a bloody outcome to his final broadcast. Whilst planning his on-air suicide ratings go sky high in this cautionary tale of outrage and exploitation.
