Summary

Sandi Toksvig chairs four sparkling episodes from the 2015 series of the ever-popular topical comedy show.

The News Quiz, "the finest topical comedy panel game known to radio", has been providing headlines and punchlines since it first aired in 1977.

In these four episodes, long-standing panellists including Jeremy Hardy plus guest panellists take a wry look at the news in all its larger-than-life glory.

Toksvig chairs proceedings, and there's also the usual clutch of humorous cuttings from the press.

Little disappointing

I was expecting the highlights of the year to be compiled into this audiobook. What you get is just 4 episodes, which in my opinion aren't actually that funny. They're OK.
Lazy editing by the BBC.
Could have been much better.

Wonderful programme! Sandy Toskvig presented it so well for almost a decade.

A fantastic satire needed more than ever! Sandy Toksvig presented it with wit & rare political insight. She raised its profile with the podcast & News Quiz Extra. Wonderful!
