Kieran Hodgson will front a new comic documentary for Channel 4.

After his one-off 2019 special How Europe Stole My Mum, a comic look at issues around Brexit co-starring Harry Enfield, he will front How We Forgot To Save The Planet with Morgana Robinson.

Robinson, currently appearing in Channel 4's twelfth series of Taskmaster, joins the stand-up comedian to "explain how people may have left it too late to save the planet - and what it will take to fix it".

Actor, writer, stand-up and Inbetweeners alumnus Simon Bird will also appear in the programme, as well as actor Laura Lovemore.

Airing at 10:15pm on Tuesday 19th October, the hour-long "irreverent documentary" is produced by Guilty Party Pictures and BBC Studios with Amanda Blue as director, Mark Bignell as producer and Simon Bird, Jonny Sweet, Spencer Millman and Steve Canny serving as executive producers.

The special has been made ahead of the UN COP26 summit on climate change - the 26th annual 'Conference of the Parties' meeting on the subject - which will be held in Glasgow between 31st October and 12th November, attracting global political leaders to the city.
