Richard Herring, Des Clarke and Keith Farnan

We all speak English but Richard Herring wants to know if we all understand each other in this BBC Radio comedy panel show.

Scotland's Des Clarke and Ireland's Keith Farnan go head to head to prove who has the superior command of the English language.

Over five rounds they compete to see who best understands dialect, slang and colloquialisms from Scotland, Ireland and the rest of the English speaking world.

They celebrate language, invent new terms for those currently-nameless-but-irritating things and even offer some surprising facts along the way.

First broadcast in July and August 2013 on BBC Radio Ulster before being broadcast on BBC Radio Scotland.
