Presenter and Studio Sixty Billion founder, Sam Delaney, says:
"This goes out every Saturday and Sunday night at 10.25pm on news channel RTUK (Sky channel 518). It is noisy, rude, fearless and very often hilarious. We have a rotating panel of extraordinary guests from the worlds of journalism, comedy and politics. Regulars include John Prescott, Shaun Ryder, Giles Coren, Germaine Greer, Neil Kinnock, Iain Lee, Luisa Zissman, Alastair Campbell, Vanesa Feltz and Susie Boniface. It’s a weird mix and a unique show. "
