I Guess That's Why They Call It The News
Friday 21 August
6:30pm - 7:00pm
BBC Radio 4
How familiar does this new comedy series sound? Two panels of two guests make fun of the news under the witty eye of a chairperson. It's impossible not to compare this to Have I Got News for You but I hope that this doesn't stop it from getting a fair chance to bed in and flourish. The pilot episode that I heard was recorded in the middle of the MPs' expenses scandal and the panel fed upon this like piranhas on a fresh bloody morsel. Fred MacAulay made an excellent chair but this show will ultimately be made or broken by the calibre and wit of the panellists.
Radio Times reviewer - Jane Anderson
Fred MacAulay chairs a topical panel show in which two teams play games inspired by the week's headlines. The show asks both the big and the little questions, and provides thoroughly silly answers to both.
