BBC Radio 4 documentary. 3 episodes (1 series) in 2010. Features Rory Bremner, Hans Teeuwen, Viktor Giacobbo and Barry Murphy.

Series 1, Episode 3 - Viktor Giacobbo

Switzerland's Viktor Giacobbo is Rory Bremner's guest this week, in the concluding part of his International Satirists series.

Further details

Viktor Giacobbo.

Viktor Giacobbo has been a satirical presence in Switzerland for the best part of 30 years and uses a variety of comic character creations to illustrate the subtle but active societal differences in this well-behaved country.

The fact that Switzerland is the oldest culturally integrated, openly democratic country in Europe cannot conceal the absurdities and contradictions found in the political classes and the people of this cheerful, mildly repressed, law-abiding nation.
