    In the first series, Armando Iannucci and his guests pull apart the news with a heady mix of topical comedy, messed-about archive, chat and outrageous fibs, recorded in front of a live studio audience. Across the complete six episodes, they start a new religion and update some Cockney rhyming slang, and as the strike by BBC workers starts to bite and the army steps in, we hear a debate on breastfeeding from 'Woman's Hour' hosted by Gunner-Sergeant Harry Donaldson of the 5th Norfolk Fusiliers.

    This is a compilation of readings from the book of the same name by the co-creator of the comedy series, Knowing Me, Knowing You. Iannucci proffers his inaccurate insights into science, the arts, and such topics as the first fist-fight on the moon, an official history of noises, the war between savoury eaters and the sweet-toothed peoples, and the existence of nonsense. Facts and Fancies is read by Armando Iannucci.

    A celebration of music from the creator of Alan Partridge, The Thick of It and Veep. All my days, I've felt pressurized by the anonymous Keepers of the Cool who tell us what we should be wearing this year, what digital boxsets we should bunker ourselves in to enjoy, what amazing app is the only one we should be shrieking emotions at our recently acquired friends with. Thankfully, I have the one consolation that if I don't quite fit into all of this, everyone else probably feels the same way.
