The News Quiz, Series 76 Episode 8 of 8

Duration:
30 minutes
First broadcast:
Friday 10 February 2012

The Times, The Tax Trial and the Balance in the Boardroom: Sandi Toksvig hosts Radio 4's long running panel game in the week that the Times was forced to apologise for email hacking, Harry Redknapp is acquitted of tax evasion and tipped for the England manager job, and David Cameron calls for greater gender equality in the boardroom. In deference to this, the all-male panel of Phill Jupitus, Rick Wakeman and Miles Jupp join series regular Jeremy Hardy, and Rory Morrison reads the news.

Produced by Lyndsay Fenner.
