What Is Britishness?

What Is Britishness?

Rory Bremner returns to Radio 4 with a new weekly comedy show that takes one big contemporary question each week and attempts to answer it as satirically as possible.

Regular panellists Nick Doody and Andy Zaltzman are joined by comedian and impressionist Mel Hudson and this week's guest experts are author, comedian and politician, John O'Farrell, and the British correspondent for Die Zeit, John Jungclaussen, as Rory asks "What is Britishness?".

Rory's mantra is that it's as important to make sense out of things as it is to make fun of them - only then will people laugh at the truth. So this deconstructed "quiz" has only one question each week, because that question is so big, there's no time for anything else. Expect a mix of stand-up and sketch combined with investigative satire and incisive interviews with a diverse range of characters who really know what they're talking about.

Presenter: Rory Bremner
Producers: Simon Jacobs & Frank Stirling
A Unique production for BBC Radio 4.
