Publisher's Summary

Three more series of the satirical radio panel show chaired by Sandi Toksvig

Sandi Toksvig, 'probably the funniest person in the English-speaking world' (The Guardian), is our host for these 25 episodes of the perennially popular comedy news quiz, first broadcast between New Year's Eve 2010 and 4 November 2011.

Joining her to poke fun at stories big and small are a panel of illustrious players including Roisin Conaty, Dominic Lawson, Richard Herring, Tom Wrigglesworth, Henning Wehn, Imran Yusuf, Julia Hartley-Brewer, Laura Solon, Sarah Millican and Paul Sinha.

Among the headlines grabbing their attention are Sky Sport's own goal, bankers' bonuses, shrinking clinks, cohabitee's rights, iPhone's tracking abilitites, celebrity gagging orders, Wikileaks whistleblowing, the Higgs-Boson particle, internet dating scams and Mary Portas' charity shop challenge - plus David Cameron's KGB recruitment attempt and Theresa May's cat spat.

Giving us a round-up of the comic cuttings sent in by listeners are newsreaders Carolyn Brown, Harriet Cass, Corrie Corfield, Peter Donaldson, Charlotte Green, Rory Morrison and Neil Sleat.
