Audio Book Summary

In his first series, Miles Jupp is in the chair for eight episodes of BBC Radio 4's ever-popular topical comedy show.

The News Quiz,‘the finest topical comedy panel game known to radio’, has been providing headlines, punchlines and a sharply satirical take on the news since it first aired in 1977.

In these eight episodes, the players include regulars such as Mark Steel, Susan Calman, Jeremy Hardy, Samira Ahmed and Lucy Porter, as well as newer panellists including Danny Finkelstein, Sarah Kendall, Emily Ashton, Elis James and Sara Pascoe.

They dissect issues diverse and diverting, including Jeremy Corbyn; Lord Ashcroft's biography of David Cameron; the 5p charge for plastic bags, the Rugby World Cup and Playboy's cover-up. There's also the usual selection of funny cuttings sent in by listeners, read bynewsreaders Neil Sleat, Kathy Clugston, Susan Rae and Diana Speed.

New boy Miles Jupp is in the chair following the retirement of Sandi Toskvig from the show in June 2015, making him the fifth host in the show's 38-year history. Duration: 4 hours approx.
