Sandi Toksvig is in the chair for this sparkling quartet of series from 2013
Hosted once again by the incomparable Sandi Toksvig, these four series of the satirical radio panel game take us through all the big stories of 2013, the year of Obama's inaugaration, Margaret Thatcher's funeral, Prince George's birth and Andy Murray's first Wimbledon win.
Series 79 features a 'Best of 2012' compilation show and 'The News Now Quiz Show', hosted by Rory Bremner, which sees Sandi and fellow News Quizzer Jeremy Hardy take on The Now Show's Steve Punt and Hugh Dennis in the ultimate topical smackdown. And the specials don't stop there: Series 81 also includes an Edinburgh edition, recorded at the Fringe Festival.
Among the topics under discussion in these four series are undercover policemen, filibusting senators, private prisons, Kim Jong-un, British culture vultures, the roll-out of universal credit, and David Dimbleby's tattoo.
