top and tail
 v.— «The big surprise at the moment is the success of Seven’s The World Around Us on Sunday nights hosted by Lisa McCune. It’s really “topped and tailed” in TV parlance. She just reads some scripts in a studio in front of a flat that can take a digital graphic. An editor and producer “tops and tails” the segments and intros and the end. And off it goes to rate between 1.2 million and 1.6 million viewers on Sunday night.» —“TV shock—original programming works” by Terry O’Dial Crikey (Australia) May 26, 2004.
