In this witty, fact-packed A-Z, Newman takes the listener on a whirlwind tour from caring, sharing vampire bats to intelligent slime mould; from pacifist baboons to Richard Dawkins wrestling naked with his postman; from the invisibility cloak of the Hawaiian bobtail squid to Francis "DNA" Crick's belief that life on Earth began with alien spaceships.
Featured here are People of Restricted Seriousness, including David Baddiel: Stand Up; Jarvis; The Poltergeist; Robert Newman: Stand Up; Special Case; and History Today.
A loyal tribute to 10 glorious years from BBC Radio 4's Week Ending team. From the archives of the legendary satirical radio comedy series Week Ending comes this compilation of satirical and sardonic sketches based on Margaret Thatcher's first 10 years as prime minister.
First released on cassette as Ten Years With Maggie, this has now been reissued as a digital download for the first time, on the 30th anniversary of Mrs Thatcher's coming to power.
History Today includes live concert footage filmed at the 1992 Edinburgh Festival, the infamous History Today ("That's You That Is") sketches from The Mary Whitehouse Experience TV show, and a version of History Today never seen on TV or heard on radio.
Here's a live stand-up performance at the Royal Festival Hall in October 1994. This brand-new show includes a stand-up set from Rob and the long-awaited return of Jarvis, "The nation's favourite pervert".
