Episode 2 of 6

Katy Brand, Alex Horne, Richard Herring and Natalie Haynes vie for verbal supremacy, chaired by Gyles Brandreth. From April 2013.

Gyles Brandreth presides over the comedy panel game where Katy Brand and Alex Horne compete against Richard Herring and Natalie Haynes to find out who knows more about words.

This week Katy Brand reveals an unexpected love of Proverbs in the Old Testament and takes a guess at what 'cougar juice' meant at the turn of the 20th century; Richard Herring explains why his favourite West County word from his schooldays is 'wasp'; Natalie Haynes guesses the meaning of the German word 'zechpreller' which has no direct translation in English, and Alex Horne coins his very own onomatopoeia to describe a snowflake landing on a bubble.

Writers: Jon Hunter and James Kettle

Producer: Claire Jones.
