Bremner's One Question Quiz

Episode 5: Who Runs Britain?

Duration: 28 minutes

First broadcast: on BBC Radio 4 FMLatest broadcast: on BBC Radio 4 Extra

Rory Bremner's new weekly satirical comedy takes one big contemporary question each week and attempts to answer it. Regular panellists Andy Zaltzman, Kate O'Sullivan and Nick Doody are joined this week by the chief political commentator for The Telegraph Peter Oborne and columnist for The Guardian, Deborah Orr.

Together, they ask "Who runs Britain?"

Rory's mantra is that it's as important to make sense out of things as it is to make fun of them. He believes only then will people laugh at the truth. This deconstructed "quiz" has only one question each week, because that question is so big there's no time for anything else. Expect a mix of stand-up and sketch combined with investigative satire and incisive interviews, with a diverse range of characters who really know what they're talking about.
