Whizz Kid creative director Steven D Wright and Broadcast’s Peter White join host Jake Kanter to score BBC1’s celebrity gymnastics show, and pick over the news of China’s limits on foreign formats.

There is also a round-up from the Production & Post Forum, where Discovery’s Andrew Jackson spilled the beans on the broadcaster’s decision to pull the plug on its co-production deal with the BBC.

Also on the show, BBC head of in-house comedy Mark Freeland pops in to discuss The Wrong Mans in detail, while a critical eye is cast over upcoming E4 comedy Drifters and BBC1 drama The Escape Artist.
