Summary

Sandi Toksvig hosts these three sensational series of 'the finest topical panel game known to radio'

For over 40 years, The News Quiz has been scrutinising the headlines to give us its unique, sardonic take on the stories that are making a splash. In these 25 episodes, we raid the archives from 2010 to rediscover the highs, lows and mediums of that action-packed year.

Sandi Toksvig is in the chair once more, attempting to corral panellists including Micky Flanagan, Armando Iannucci, Fred MacAulay, Milton Jones, Gyles Brandreth, Bridget Christie, Will Smith, Ava Vidal and Danielle Ward.

Together, they probe topics including Sarah Palin's Fox News gig; Greece's precarious economy; the eruptions of Eyjafjallajökull; the Commonwealth Games, Australia's Next Top Model, the General Election and the Conservative/LibDem coalition government - as well as the battling Milliband brothers and fibbing toddlers. Plus, newsreaders Carolyn Brown, Harriet Cass, Corrie Corfield, Peter Donaldson, Charlotte Green, Rory Morrison and Neil Sleat light up each episode with the funny stories, misprints and typos sent in by listeners.
