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 »

Different for Daytime
6 November 2006 | by annierandomSee all my reviews

I must agree with the other reviewers. I recently had a baby and was not looking forward to the usual daytime drivel on television whilst on maternity leave. This programme was such a saving grace and is such a refreshing change.

The varying panel provides a mixed view of perspectives on topical subjects and Mathew Wright oversees proceedings in a light hearted but sensitive manner.

It is an excellent way to get an overview of the daily papers and controversial discussion points. The contributions from the public and the audience help to keep the pace of the show lively.

The only criticism I do have is for the final segment of the show in which members of the public are encouraged to call up with problems for discussion with an expert. I'm not at all sure that this is suitable given the fast paced nature of the show and you are often left feeling as though some very vulnerable people's serious problems have been rushed through. However I understand that this is a new-ish segment to the show and I am sure that with time they will get it (w)right.

Thoroughly enjoyable overall!
