Rory Bremner's new Radio 4 series Tonight starts at 11pm tonight. Recorded last night it features topical satire, stand-up and sketch giving an alternative take on what's happening in the news.

On The Telegraph website radio critic Gillian Reynolds wrote:

"Rory Bremner comes home to radio, hosting this new series which combines topical satire, sketches, stand-up routines, impressions and the kind of investigative parody he made his own on Channel 4 in the darkest days of Blairism. Some fellow satirists mock him for earnestness, self-righteousness. I think they might just be a bit jealous of his powers of observation and mimicry. He's assisted here by comedian and writer Andy Zaltzman and impressionist Kate O'Sullivan."

And here are some pictures from last night's recording to whet your appetite:
