Further details

The show starts with the topic of sport and if '9' is the answer, what is the question, with discussion about the British success in the Olympics games so far.

The Chariots Of News round features stand-up material from Lucy on leisure, Andy on technology, Frankie on animals, and Russell on British society.

Then follows the headliners round - a photo of David Cameron on a bike with the initials C.S.B.S, and chat about moving from the north to south, and the ongoing troubles with Russia and Georgia.

The show ends as always with scenes we'd like to see - this week it's questions that were rejected from this year's exams, and lines you wouldn't hear in a costume drama.
