2016 Specials, Episode 1 - The Vote Now Show: EU and Yours

A comic take on the EU Referendum, recorded just hours before broadcast, four days before polling stations open. Should we stay or should we go? They definitely won't be giving a definitive answer, but Steve Punt, Hugh Dennis, Jon Holmes, Mitch Benn and some special guests, help to unpick the thorny issues.


Recorded Sunday 19th June at the BBC Radio Theatre.
