A current affairs parody & stupidly feasible visit to the 24-hour Hall Of Opinion Mirrors. Because there are two stories to every story.
The team of Carrie Quinlan (“John Finnemore’s Souvenir Programme”) , Justin Edwards (“The Thick Of It”), Melanie Hudson (“I’m Alan Partridge”), Simon Kane (“John Finnemore’s Souvenir Programme”), Jess Robinson (“The Imitation Game”), Luke Sumner (“Harry Potter & The Cursed Child”), Tayla Kovacevic-Ebong, Kath Hughes and Tony Way (“Game Of Thrones”) are the team, with contributions from David Reed (“The Penny Dreadfuls”, “Inside The Comedian”) and Kerry Shale.
In the first episode – “Stalemate” - a new trend in children’s parties and an international humanitarian disaster come under the Agendascope™. Plus - should Britain seek the expert advice of wheelwrights and hubmen?
In Episode 2, “Timebomb”, some exciting new old repeats on your TV, a new use for cardboard and shepherds pie quite literally sweeps the nation. Plus an extraordinary revelation about Kate Bush...
In the third episode, (“Meltdown"), we visit the English Channel, Liverpool and Waitrose and have an enjoyable chat about a new form of murder – all hosted by hostioneer Alexandra Palisades
And in the final episode- “Good Luck Everybody” - we save some succulents, stir the financial soup and discover whether Britain will be better off under a cheese and tomato sandwich

Whether it’s a gift for a colleague you’ve barely uttered a word to or for Great Auntie what’s-her-name you only see once a year, there’s nothing quite like the annual public humiliation of a Secret Santa. But fear not – one of these stocking-sized books are guaranteed to get a nod of approval, whoever's name it is you pulled out of a hat.
