Rob Rinder's Good Year, Bad Year

In this end of year review show, Rob Rinder casts an unflinching eye, razor-sharp legal mind and acerbic tongue over the events of 2018 to judge once and for all whether the year will be chalked up as being a 'good' or 'bad' one.

Further details

With the help of celebrity guests Anthony Scaramucci, Deborah Frances-White, Ed Balls, Clare Balding, George Osborne, Tez Ilyas and David Baddiel, Rob Rinder delves deep into all the news stories, people and talking points of the year.

Uncompromising, perceptive and funny, Rob makes us reconsider what we previously thought about 2018 with a fresh take on the big issues while also bringing us the hilarious tiny details we've already forgotten in our post-Christmas booze haze.
