In We Need Answers, two celebrity guests take part in a knock-about quiz to find out which one of them is the smartest, the funniest, and the best at surreal physical challenges.
The rules are simple - contestants must match their answer to the one given by the text answering service. Questions can range from how many gerbils would have to be stacked on top of each other to reach the Moon to what night of the week is "curry night" at the Red Lion in Stockport.
A 13 part second series is now on TV. BBC Four boss Richard Klein says: "I am delighted that We Need Answers is back. The show is a smart way of playing with the whole entertainment quiz genre, and Mark, Alex and Tim are an anarchic but genuinely funny team on the show (even if they still don't quite understand the questions)."
