Narrated by Ruth Jones, this new series is a weekly round-up of the week's most talked-about topics and newsworthy events, brought to you by the everyday people reading about them. It showcases real people, and their real opinions on the week's topical talking points whilst in conversation with one another in everyday situations - at work, on a tea break or relaxing down the pub. Amongst the 'cast' are a couple of east end market traders, dinner ladies from Leeds, Mancunian male nail technicians, Brummie butchers, Scottish launderette owners, supermarket co-workers and three great-grandmothers from Hull.
