On The Hour is BBC Radio 4's most important news programme. Presented by Christopher Morris, On The Hour covers all of the important stories such as, "Glass-faced man too disgusting for trial!", "International string measurements agreed!" and "More oxygen needed says France!"

Supporting Morris are a range of fearless correspondents, including vapid US reporter Barbara Wintergreen; environmental reporter Rosy May; religious commentator Monsignor Treeb-Lopez, the terribly incompetent Peter O'Hanraha-Hanrahan; Radio 1 DJ Wayne Carr; and the monstrous face of sport, Alan Partridge.
