Host Matthew Wright and an invited group of panelists, and the occasional celebrity, review topical stories from the newspapers and discuss burnings issues of the day interactively, via telephone or email, with members of the general public. Written by

In February 2015, Wright stated as a fact on the show that the late Sir Jimmy Savile had conned charities into believing he had run marathons which he hadn't actually run. However, while Savile has been posthumously proven to be a paedophile and necrophiliac whose charity fundraising was designed to gain access to vulnerable people, any accusations that he deceived charities over completing his marathons are tenuous and have not been proven.

Matthew Wright and 3 panelists discuss what's going on in Britain
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!
