No Such Thing As The News

Commissioned by BBC News, No Such Thing As The News is a topical, television version of the hugely successful QI podcast No Such Thing As A Fish. It will be broadcast on BBC Two at 11pm on Fridays after Newsnight, for a five-week run beginning in May.
In 110 weekly editions since its launch in 2014, No Such Thing As A Fish has been downloaded 25 million times and attracted 715,000 subscribers. It won iTunes’ ‘Best New Podcast’ award in 2014 and the Chortle Online award in 2015 & 2016. It has toured theatres in Britain and the world (well, Belgium), sold out the Lyric in London’s West End, and released a vinyl album.

No Such Thing As The News, its current affairs counterpart, promises to be fast, intelligent, hilarious television, completely unlike any other show on air. It’s about contemporary events, but it’s not ‘satire’. It aims to do for the news what QI does for the universe at large: making the apparently dull interesting, the obscure clear and the frightening comprehensible.
