0120210324In their previous BBC Radio 4 series, Empire-ical Evidence, comedians Andy Zaltzman and Anuvab Pal travelled to each other’s home cities and walked around, taking in the sights and sounds and taste and feel of the bustling metropoli of London and Kolkata, before performing stand-up in crowded rooms full of people laughing loudly and maybe even sharing snacks.

In Future Empire-fect, their new series recorded in March 2021, they won’t be doing that.

What they will be doing is looking at the future of the relationship between Britain and India in fields such as politics, medicine, cricket, culture, cricket, trade, hospitality and cricket. In this first episode, they take in the pharmaceutical industry, business, trade and politics, and how the two nations plan to work together - or not.

Praise for Empire-ical Evidence:
"Surprisingly successful as both entertainment and education." The Telegraph
"I was intrigued by Andy Zaltzman and Anuvab Pal's ambition and then surprised to find myself chuckling at their chutzpah." The Spectator

In this second episode, they finally get to the important issue - cricket. And also tourism, education and comedy. But mainly cricket.
