"This is the funniest thing I've heard on Radio 4 in years and I'm considering suing the network for irreparable damage to my sides." (Jane Anderson, Radio Times)

FUN

I have listened to this audio over ten times and there is always a smile on my face during my listening. British comedy has always appealed to me and the fact that I learn from this adds to the enjoyment. Please bring more of these out to Audible. AUDIBLE 20 REVIEW SWEEPSTAKES ENTRY

Such Fun

I learned about this program from the British TV show QI. David Mitchell was a guest and his banter with Stephen Fry was seriously hilarious. This program is like an old friend because if you watch British Panel Shows (like I do!) you know the people on this radio show. That is a bonus to be able to picture them and match up their voice with appearance. I listen to this program almost everyday! In fact I've listened to many of the series several times. I can't get enough!

Fantastic series

This is a fantastic series from BBC which plays on radio 4. The premise for each episode is very simple, there are four competing in each episode, each of them is given a topic and they are asked to provide a narration on it - most of the information is false, with five truths being added in. The other people have to try to guess what the truths are.
This is a great series to learn about some very strange facts about obscure things which is always fun and it is also good to listen to with your kids if they are over 10 or so. My children and I listen to all the time and we all love it. As a final suggestion if you have trouble getting to sleep but don't mind a voice to help you drift off this is a great series to use - you don't miss anything important to a story and the episodes are only 30 mins so you can set your sleep cycle to the end of the chapter.
