5/6. "It's... a... topsy-turvy world!" David Quantick and company poke fun at the ridiculous in popular culture. Featuring guest appearances from Gilbert and Sullivan and correspondents Daniel Maier, Richie Webb, Jane Lamacraft and Margaret Cabourn-Smith.
Classic films such as Casablanca have been digitised; poetry's influence on hip-hop music is examined in America; the Millner Gallery in Halifax comes under fire for its latest show, "Dead Dead Dead, Death, Mortality and Decay"; the local roundup this week comes from Penzance; Dannii Minogue is looking at a new hotel made entirely of fire, and Gilbert and Sullivan return from the dead once again to parody the world of the television talent show. Turned upside-down, naturally.
