How Should We Educate Our Children?

Rory Bremner's new weekly satirical comedy takes one big contemporary question each week and attempts to answer it.

Regular panellists Andy Zaltzman, Kate O'Sullivan and Nick Doody are joined this week by teacher, author and columnist Tom Bennett and Professor of Education Gordon Stobart.

Rory's mantra is that it's as important to make sense out of things as it is to make fun of them. He believes only then will people laugh at the truth. 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.
