A special show featuring previously unseen material from and highlights of the sixth series.

Amongst the various out-takes was news topics including Zimbabwe and the Beijing Olympics, with an unseen newsreel round featuring footage of Prince Charles and Camilla. The scenes we'd like to see were things that would ruin the atmosphere at a dinner party, and things you didn't hear at the Olympics.
