Press Clippings

We're in familiar panel show territory here. But, shock of shocks, there's a gender balance and an ethnic mix - comic Toby Williams is the token white guy and never allowed to forget it. The questions are at the smart end of the spectrum, asking questions of black history, and that makes it informative too since most the pioneers mentioned never made the school curriculum devised by white folk.

Host Jimmy Akingbola plays it fairly straight, and his thespian background gives him an innate authority, leaving the teams - Chizzy Akudolu, Jo Martin, Jimmy James Jones, Paul Chowdhry, Judi Love as well as Williams - to muck about with the jokes. They deliver as dependably and flippantly as any of the big panel shows, and the subject matter certainly gives it a point of difference.
