The Secret World allows listeners to eavesdrop on the bizarre, surprising and very secret lives of public people who have been caught unaware by the microphone.

Parallel stories unfold from morning until night as the great and good become embroiled in the most unlikely situations. Although not topical or political, The Secret World is a surreal twist on the familiar "impression show" without parody, pastiche or the usual caricaturising.
