Yes, Nina Conti Really Is On The Radio

Not since Educating Archie, more than 50 years ago, has a ventriloquist had a show on the radio. Nina Conti is Britain's leading vent and has been all round the world with her puppet Monkey, Gran, Dog and others. Not only is Nina an expert at her craft, she demonstrates that she can think on her feet, chatting to the audience and her two guests: physicist Jim Al-Khalili and Wagner from X Factor. She also invites her audience to bring puppets of their own, which she brings magically to life. This is a celebration of the ancient craft, and a chance to hear one of Britain's funniest women at the top of her game.
