In 1986, ambitious reporter Dale dreams of landing the most prized role on commercial TV, newsreader. But Helen, the networks first female newsreader, struggles against her reputation as difficult.
Helen and Dale's new alliance has become the talk of the office as they cover the much-hyped return of Halley's Comet. The closer Dale draws to Helen, the more he finds himself thrust into the spotlight.
When news breaks of Lindy Chamberlain's imminent release from prison, Helen, Dale, and cameraman Tim fly to Darwin, but they face fierce competition as they fight to land the `interview of the century'.
Helen is deeply apprehensive about meeting Dales mother, while Dale gets lumbered with Royal Wedding puff pieces. However, their everyday concerns are suddenly thrown aside when a bomb goes off on Russell Street.
Dale's career and his relationship with Helen couldn't be any better, until his prized interview with an HIV-positive mother goes horribly wrong. In the eye of a media storm, buried secrets come to light.
Dale visits Helen's house to attempt a reconciliation, but finds his belongings on the doorstep. After a frosty few days of avoiding each other, work forces them back together.
