What to expect

Since 1977, BBC Radio 4’s funniest and quirkiest game show has been answering questions and offering wit and wisdom on global happenings, national news and quite frankly pathetic parochial events. In this annual highlights edition, a selection of 2005’s most entertaining news stories and current events are given a satirical twist by top comedians and journalists. Panellists include Alan Coren, Andy Hamilton, Jeremy Hardy, Armando Iannucci, Linda Smith and Francis Wheen. ‘The cleverest, wittiest, best programme in any medium in the story of the world ever’ – Chris Campling, The Times.
