What was Pierce Brosnan banned from doing while he played James Bond? Which film was released in Poland as Electronic Murderer? And who is Digger the Crab? All these questions and more from the last 100,000 years of human history will be answered as unflappable question-master Jimmy Carr tests the knowledge of Sandi Toksvig, Joe Lycett, Katherine Ryan, Big Narstie, David Baddiel and Frank Skinner. As always, he is aided and abetted by Jon Snow, Charles Dance and a phalanx of celebrity question-setters.

Jimmy Carr hosts the show that's bigger, fatter, and quizzier than ever, letting loose on not just the year-gone-by but well... everything.

No sooner has The Big Fat Quiz Of The Year conga'd by, than a new series returns with more questions pertaining to the past 100,000 years of human history. Jonathan Ross, David Walliams, Katherine Ryan, Aisling Bea, Noel Fielding and Richard Ayoade will once again be answering headscratchers posed by Jimmy Carr, such as why do tennis players wear white? And what diet did William the Conqueror attempt?

Having barely scratched 100,000 years of human history in January's one-off special, a full series of Jimmy Carr's celebrity quiz arrives to finish the job. As with the Big Fat annual affairs, the quality is likely dictated by the guests therein, but tonight's opening lineup suggests a strong start. David Mitchell, Bob Mortimer and Mel Giedroyc feature, while Kristen Schaal adds transatlantic talent to the historical hullabaloo.

Talk about broadening your remit. Usually, C4's Big Fat Quizzes are merely satisfied with tackling year-sized slices of pop culture and current affairs. This time, though, Jimmy Carr rocks up with a panel game covering a whopping 100,000 years of human history. Guests including Mel Giedroyc, Richard Ayoade, Noel Fielding and Chelsea Peretti attempt to wring whimsy from historical happenings such as witch hunting, landmarks in the biological sciences and - nostalgia alert - 1970s board games.
