Series 2, Episode 2

This week Jeremy Paxman puts his University Challenge hat on to quiz Michael Howard, George Bush pops up on What's My Line? and confuses everyone, and we test out Bill Oddie's driving skills. It can only mean more fun from the cutting room as DWTWT once again wreaks havoc with the archives.

Further details

David Dimbleby takes a flight with the Red Arrows, Tony Blair's long lost job as a mini cab driver comes to light, and there's a rare outing for Pan's People as they are invited to entertain a packed Albert Hall at the Last Night of the Proms. Did they really say that? Judge for yourself as the edit suite spews out another half hour of collage TV.
