A short run of programmes recorded live at different British university venues. The series was parodically set up as a parallel to the Radio 1 Roadshow, aiming to convert the student masses to the glories of Radio 4 (with appropriately altered jingles: “Across the UK: BBC Radio… four… FM!” The contents were billed as consisting of “a shoddy competition, off-the-cuff repartee with the audience, a look at the problems of being young, and facts about the town we’re in”.
