Battling it out for pride and extra mince pies are three teams. Broadcast editor Lisa Campbell and Whizz Kid creative director Steven D Wright join forces to take on Danny Fenton, chief executive of ZigZag Productions and Robin Parker, the features editor of Broadcast.

The final team is made up of Broadcast deputy editor Chris Curtis and Laura Mansfield, managing director of Outline Productions.

Quizmaster Jake Kanter has been rummaging through a year’s worth of news and gossip to devise some fiendish questions.

Rounds include naming the news from an obscure set of clips and Talking TV’s take on Play Your Cards Right (with added ratings) and Countdown. Finally, the mother of all quick-fire rounds, Axed or Backed, asks what’s been cancelled or recommissioned this year.

Talking TV is available on SoundCloud below and can also be downloaded on iTunes here. The podcast is recorded at Maple Street Studios and the producer is Matt Hill.
