Prime Time explores the behind-the-scenes drama and humour of Lockhart Productions, a Television Production Company which produces a one-hour mid-week current affairs programme for a national television network. It follows the working lives, private lives, successes and failures of the people who work on the program “Assignment”, both in front and behind the cameras. David Lockhart is the sharp and aggressiveinterviewer renowned for his dynamic approach. He heads the team both on and off-air. Lockhart is the presenter of “Assignment”, as well as both producing and packaging the programme for the Five Network. The characters who work at Lockhart Productions are a diverse group - as in any working situation. There is an intriguing mixture of those whose ambition and drive are tempered by their vulnerability and insecurity, and others whose carefree approach is underlined by a fundamental concern. When all are thrown together in the pressured, competitive atmosphere of Lockhart Productions, the results are usually dramatic, something moving and often comical.
