Summary

Here is a third volume of highlights from recent series of The News Quiz, presented by chairman Simon Hoggart.

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.

Regular panellists Alan Coren, Jeremy Hardy, Andy Hamilton, and Linda Smith are once again joined by a plethora of guests from the media and politics worlds.

BBC- The News quiz

The best of modern satire with a Who’s Who line up from the worlds of comedy & journalism. Contributions from Armando Iannucci, Andy Hamilton, John Sargent, Linda Smith, Chris Addison, Sandi Toksvig, Jeremy Hardy, Francis Wheen, Clive Anderson, Phil Jupitus & many others including the BBC neutrals Charlotte Green & Harriet Cass. The only potential fly in the ointment is the disingenuous input from Boris Johnson. At this point, you would be forgiven for thinking that satire is dead. However, look out for the superb interchange between Sandi & Boris. There are some fantastic one liners from other venerable members of the team. This is BBC satire at its best with much of the issues relevant now as then.
