Further details

This episode of the show features guests Greg Proops and Fred MacAulay. The show starts asking if '1,433 days' is the answer, what is the question, with discussion quickly following on to the closing of the Olympic Games and London's part of the ceremony. The Newsacalifragilisticexpialidocious round features stand-up material from Andy on health, Greg on George Bush, Fred on the modern man, and Frankie on children. Then follows the head liners round - a photo of the Clintons with the initials C.A.D.C, and chat about the current U.S. Democrats convention in Denver, and then moving on to the topic of jellyfish. The show ends as always with scenes we'd like to see - this episode they are unlikely greetings cards, and things you didn't hear at the Olympics.
