The News Quiz: the Best of 2017 : The Topical BBC Radio 4 Comedy Panel Show CD-Audio

Narrated by Miles Jupp, Full Cast



Four of the funniest recent episodes from the topical comedy show, presented by Miles Jupp2017 marked the 40th anniversary of The News Quiz, 'the finest topical comedy panel game known to radio' and a guaranteed provider of headlines, punchlines and sparkling satirical wit. These four shows from Series 92 and 93 take a tongue-in-cheek look at current events, with chairman Miles Jupp presiding over a pack of keen newshounds including Jeremy Hardy, Zoe Lyons, Susan Calman, Charlie Higson, Andy Hamilton, Vicki Pepperdine, Helen Lewis, Sarah Kendall, Lucy Porter, Mark Steel, Hugo Rifkind, Rich Hall and Katy Brand. The panellists find the funny in topics ranging from Donald Trump to Morris dancing, and from by-elections to pie selections, taking in Brexit, Theresa May, Jeremy Corbyn, urban foxes and an unorthodox lifeguard recruitment drive - not to mention the small matter of a UK General Election.

To add to the hilarity, newsreaders Alan Smith, Corrie Corfield and Kathy Clugston read a selection of humorous press cuttings contributed by listeners. So sit back and enjoy the highlights of a news-packed year in the company of some of the best and brightest commentators. Duration: 2 hours approx.
