A two-part series linked to the 2014 Commonwealth Games, featuring a mixture of stand-up and sketches. Mark Nelson and Susan Calman are the main presenters.

The first programme will be based around the build-up to Glasgow 2014, with the second part reacting to all the action from the Games themselves.

Susan Calman says: "As a Glaswegian I'm hugely excited about the Commonwealth Games happening on my doorstep, and being able to celebrate the City and the Games through comedy is even better. I can't wait to get started on Don't Drop The Baton, working with some of the finest talent Scotland, and the Commonwealth, has to offer."
