Would I Lie To You?

Would I Lie to You?, BBC1

“A few more women would be good. Otherwise it’s as fun to watch as it looks like it is to be on, and manages to be razor-sharp without being cruel or humiliating in any way. Would I Lie to You is just about the loveliest show on TV, and that’s the truth.”
Sam Wollaston, The Guardian

“Would I Lie To You? has returned for an umpteenth series in ten years, quicker and funnier than ever, with team captains Lee Mack and David Mitchell weaving one-liners into half an hour of inconsequential nonsense. Like chairman Rob Brydon, they could do this in their sleep — and we’d still watch.”

Labour: The Summer That Changed Everything, BBC2

“While watching this year’s political upset play back in slow motion was good fun, there was little new expressed here for political hounds who have followed Labour’s internal upset since 2015.”
Daisy Wyatt, The i

“It’s probably safe to say that Labour: The Summer That Changed Everything didn’t turn out quite as David Modell expected when he began filming four Labour MPs in the run-up to the snap general election in June. Modell should be congratulated for this access, although other MPs may see it as a lesson that no good can come of speaking to camera before a result is known.”

Storyville: My Mother’s Lost Children, BBC4

“It’s an extraordinary story, about separation, guilt and loss. And a touching, affecting, very human film.”
Sam Wollaston, The Guardian

“It’s an original idea for a 45-minute gameshow, not unlike watching Midsomer Murders on fast forward.”
Christopher Stevens, Daily Mail
