12 hours 3 minutes
Three fantastic series of the satirical radio panel game from 2014
In these 26 episodes, we turn the clock back to 2014 - the year when Scotland said 'no' to independence, Ukrainians ousted their pro-Russia president in the Maidan Revolution, and the European Space Agency's Philae probe made its historic first landing on a comet.
Sandi Toksvig is in the chair for every show bar one, in which Susan Calman steps in as temporary host. Subjects on the table for the team include NHS pay, a badger crash, commuter train standards, Russian activities in Crimea, dietary health scares, passport delays and black cab strikes.
Giving us the skinny on these and many other stories are panellists including Kevin Day, David Mitchell, Romesh Ranganathan, Jo Brand, Angela Barnes, Sarah Millican, Lucy Porter, Paul Sinha and Tom Wrigglesworth - as well as Olympic gold medallist Duncan Goodhew, who joins the team for a 'Sport Relief' special. Bringing a touch of class to the cuttings are newsreaders Kathy Clugston, Corrie Corfield, Susan Rae, Neil Sleat, Zeb Soanes and - making her debut appearance - Diana Speed.
