Listomania is a panel show in which all manner of things, big and small, are categorised and listed. It also explores the world of the list - from the humble to do list to the finality of the bucket list.

Presented by Susan Calman it will challenge a panel of comedians, DJs and musicians to take part in a series of anarchic and hilarious games which celebrate the power of the humble list. To do lists, buckets lists, shopping lists, and everything in between.

What would be on a Dalek's to do list? What's a list of things you should avoid doing before you die?

All these questions and a list of many more are tackled by panellists including Sarah Millican, Ricky Wilson, Al Murray, Radio 2 presenter Sara Cox, Jocelyn Esien, and Aisling Bea.

Susan Calman says: "I'm absolutely delighted to be hosting the new series Listomania on BBC Radio 2. It's full of fun questions, off the wall trivia and occasionally (very occasionally) something educational. With four guests on each show ranging from comedians to DJs to musicians, it's something I'm incredibly proud to be part of. On my list of radio programmes I've been part of, it's my Number 1. Hopefully the audience will love it as much as I've loved recording it."
