Is Our Democracy Working?

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

Regular panellists Andy Zaltzman and Nick Doody are joined this week by guests Debra Stephenson and political historian Dr David Runciman, as Rory asks "Is Our Democracy Working"?

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.
