Comedian John Robins hosts the comedy quiz show where contestants try to finish sentences based on some of the internet's most popular search terms. Can five contestants predict some of the most common 'autocompletes' and survive to the final round?

John is ably assisted by fact-master Sunil Patel, who explains just why we search for the things we do.

It's the only quiz show where humans supply the questions and robots supply the answers, and where you're only ever one round away from being deleted from the game.

John Robins said, "For many years now I've been suspicious that the 'internet' is getting too big for its boots. Its war against our high streets, laws and HMRC goes completely unchecked, and that's not to mention the unknowable impact on future generations of the constant stream of top shelf material it provides, whose sheer volume and variety never ceases to astonish and horrify.

"I say it's time to fight back, to reclaim our streets, to enforce our laws, recoup our taxes, and place pornography back on actual shelves in the real world, where it can be controlled, policed, and placed under a copy of The Times before handing to a sympathetic newsagent. Ladies and gentlemen, I invite you to Beat The Internet."
