The News at Bedtime is introduced by twin presenters John Tweedledum (Jack Dee) and Jim Tweedledee (Peter Capaldi) - who argue and disagree with everyone - and sometimes each other. There is also Mary Mary, the Contrary Correspondent; Thought for the Day with Peter Rabbi; and the weather with Dilly Dilly.
This is serious broadcasting: The News at Bedtime addresses the zeitgeist issues of today and once upon a time from Nurseryland; Humpty Dumpty's great fall, the worrying story of Jack and the Genetically Modified Beanstalk and the celebrity wedding of the owl to the pussycat, to name but three.
