Tilt was a topical sketch show that took listeners behind the week's news. The sketches did not go for the obvious targets, but instead tackled the news in more unusual ways, using a mixture of characters, editing and sketches from unsolicited writers.

Our Review: This comedy was of particular interest to aspiring comedy writers because it accepted sketches from unsolicited writers. Several members of the British Comedy Guide had material broadcast on the show. Tilt will not be returning, however it has been replaced by a new show with an open door submission policy - 7 On 7 (click the 'see also' section).
