    This BBC Radio 4 series explores the fascinating subject of human evolution, firstly by looking at the primary advantage mankind has over those poor saps, "The Animals": language. We explore the number of languages now in use (5,000 or so) and why the people of Lewisham don't seem to have chosen one as yet. Among other things, Professor Herring demonstrates his value-based translation machine, and we meet a man who thinks his bees are telling him about unsolved crimes.

    Based on his Perrier-nominated Edinburgh hit show of 2004, Chris Addison's Civilisation is a comedy lecture series for Radio 4. It neatly follows on from Chris' first Radio 4 series, The Ape that Got Lucky. Western civilisation, like many very old things, is pretty much on its last legs. And if western civilisation as we know it is dying sooner rather than later, we're going to have to build ourselves a new one. And how are we going to do that, then?

    Ooh, look! Chris Addison – star of BAFTAs-winning 'The Thick of It' and 'In The Loop', 'Mock The Week' regular, 'Live At The Apollo' and 'Have I Got News For You' type person, evil headmaster off 'Skins' and host of E4’s 'Show & Tell' – has made a show of his critically acclaimed stand-up for the first time. Innit. Recorded live (obviously) at London’s Bloomsbury Theatre following a massive sell-out tour, Chris Addison Live is a blisteringly funny experience. Although you won’t actually get blisters. That’s just an expression.
