4/6. Zany show in which host Rob Deering and Russell Howard combine stand-up, sketches, character monologues, music, fresh new UK talent, special guests and, most entertainingly, unconventional demands on the studio audience.

1/2. Chris Evans profiles rock group Genesis, who formed in 1967 as a rather straightforward band before morphing into one of the more high-definition exponents of "progressive" rock in the 1970s. Defined by elaborate, imaginative and often longwinded recordings and stage shows with a distinctly English character, the band featured lead singer and rock conceptualist Peter Gabriel , who jumped ship in 1975. Drummer Phil Collins replaced him at the mike, and saw the band transform its album-orientated sound (Foxtrot, The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway) into something eventually more singles-chart-friendly (Follow You
FollowMe, Turn It on Again, Mama and the US number one Invisible Touch). The programme includes interviews with Gabriel, Collins, Mike Rutherford, Tony Banks and Steve Hackett. Producer John Sugar
