May 30th, 2016

Episode 82 of 104 episodes

We all like to think we know about the news and yet, whilst jokes about George Osborne's new haircut are all well and good, do you still have that nagging suspicion there's important things going on beneath the headlines you'd like to know about? Well, help is at hand! Nish Kumar is here to cast his spotlight on the week's most talked about news items, taking an in-depth look at the biggest stories from the past seven days to scrutinise what's actually going on beneath the bluster. In tonight's show, Nish gets to grip with the EU and the scaremongering coming from both sides, press regulation in light of Paddling Pool-gate, and the seemingly inpenetrable TTIP. Meanwhile, intrepid reporter Diane Steer puts the Remain campaign's predictions to the test. Starring Nish Kumar, Kieran Hodgson, Cariad Lloyd, and Freya Parker. Written by Liam Beirne, Sarah Campbell, Max Davis, Gabby Hutchinson-Crouch, Nish Kumar, and Tom Neenan. The research producer was Rachel Wheeley. The production coordinator was Sophie Richardson. It was produced by Matt Stronge and was a BBC Studios Production.
