What Does the Future Hold?

Rory Bremner's 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 environmental journalist George Monbiot and author of 'An Optimist's Tour of the Future', Mark Stevenson.

Together, they ask "What does the future hold?"

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. 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.
