Who Runs Britain?

Episode 5 of 6

28 minutes
First broadcast:
Friday 13 September 2013

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 the chief political commentator for The Telegraph Peter Oborne and columnist for The Guardian, Deborah Orr.

Together, they ask "Who runs Britain?"

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.

Producers: Simon Jacobs and Frank Stirling
A Unique production for BBC Radio 4.
