Summary

Award-winning comedian Richard Herring pokes and prods a variety of controversial objects to see if the controversy falls out. Via stand-up comedy, vox pops and interviews, he examines the objects' history, meaning and significance and challenges our assumed logic and stereotypes. 

Over the course of these episodes Richard trains his beady eye on, among other things, the toothbrush moustache, Dolly the sheep, the St. George's Flag and Page 3. Can we reclaim these objects and prise them away from their unfortunate associations? Or should we consign them to the dustbin of history? 

Written and presented by Richard Herring.
With Emma Kennedy and special guests.
Produced by Alison Vernon-Smith and Tilusha Ghelani.
