One of the first satirical panel games created, and still going strong after decades on air.
The News Quiz asks a panel of comedians to talk about the big news events of the week, as well as reading some funny cuttings from the week's papers, as sent in by listeners.
A new host will be announced for Series 100. Most recently the show was hosted by Miles Jupp. Previously, Sandi Toksvig was at the helm - she chaired over 220 episodes. The other hosts in the show's history are Barry Norman, Barry Took and Simon Hoggart.
