    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.

    Michael and Maxine Wilson and their teenage daughters, Lola and Cat (plus their bearded dragon, Chomsky, and about 150,000 bees), have resolved to live a cleaner, greener, serener life. They are attempting to live ethically...whatever that means. The Wilsons conscientiously tackle tricky situations and dilemmas, from balancing the need of hot sun on holiday to a carbon-neutral campsite, explaining the pitfalls of online relationships to their daughter by drawing parallels to Brexit or protesting library closures when, according to Cat, everything can be found online anyway.

    Giles has been grounded! Budleigh Salterton’s most famous citizen has been forced to stay at home by the Home Office - and his father. But something minor like that won’t dent Giles’s enthusiasm, so in this fourth series, he sets up GWH Travvel ("two ‘m’s, two ‘g’s, two ‘v’s - bit of a mix up at the printers"). Run from his bedroom, GWH Travvel is a one-stop Travel/Advice/Events Management/Website service, which always stays true to its motto: "We go there so you won’t want to".

    He's back, and this time he's muddy. You can follow the exploits the guru of Budleigh Salterton as he enjoys the sights, the smells, and the sheer footling misery of Glastonbury 2007. With his ever-unhelpful fiancée Bella, played by Catherine Tate, and a ragtag assortment of hippies and hummous, Giles shows you that all you need for the perfect festival is 4000 Cornish pasties, Shirley Bassey, and a hat in the shape of a muppet. That's Giles Wemmbley Hogg Goes Off...To Glastonbury.

    He's back! Budleigh Salterton's most famous citizen, traveller and worldly guru knows nothing about football or Germany, but from the moment he decides to book a strolling holiday in the Schwarzwald ("because it'll be nice and quiet this time of year"), he pitches headlong into the thrilling arena of the World Cup. He may never have played football, but, he was Sports Monitor at school, (or as he puts it, "I was the only one allowed to touch the Master's ballbag at Charterhouse").
