Trivia

The series is broadcast live without a delay, which has resulted in a number of occasions when the series has accidentally broadcast foul language. Wright had to apologise after special guest Giles Coren repeatedly used a vulgar term for oral sex while he was being interviewed and Rula Lenska accidentally uttered "bollocks" on the programme. Several callers to the programme have used foul language deliberately to cause offence. See more »

Matthew Wright and 3 panelists discuss what's going on in Britain
29 June 2006 | by (Manchester, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Witty, bright - something to get your brain going in the morning! Very popular with students apparently (myself included!) Starting off with a summary of the morning papers and then three topical discussion points.

There's usually a serious topic - domestic violence, the war on terror to name a couple; something funny and light-hearted - back to the stocks for youth offenders!; and something in between.

The new extended show (90 minutes) includes a (usually) health section with an expert from the field discussing anything from diet, sex, relationships, wine, food and even pets with love life problems on a Friday.

The banter between Matthew Wright and the panel guests (and the callers and audience) is funny, witty, and I challenge you not to be joining in the discussion from your armchair! Watch out for Wrighty complaining about coppers nabbing him on his bike in the park! V funny!
