In their previous BBC Radio 4 series, Empire-ical Evidence, Andy Zaltzman and Anuvab Pal travelled to each other's home cities and walked around, taking in the sights and sounds and taste and feel of the bustling metropoli of London and Kolkata, before performing stand-up in crowded rooms full of people laughing loudly and maybe even sharing snacks.

In their new series, Future Empire-fect, they won't be doing that. What they will be doing is looking at the future of the relationship between Britain and India in fields such as politics, medicine, cricket, culture, cricket, trade, hospitality and cricket.
