That Was Then, This Is Now - with Richard Herring.

What happened in this week throughout history? And what does that tell us about where we are now? Richard Herring - fresh from his Edinburgh '04 success - uses a blend of stand up, sketches, meticulous research and made up rubbish to give us the answers.

Joined by Emma Kennedy (People Like Us), Dan Tetsell and Danny Robins (Museum of Everything), with music from Christian Reilly (Otis Lee Crenshaw's The Black Liars) and his band Novalounge.
