Jimmy Carr challenges Vic Reeves, Bob Mortimer, Claudia Winkleman, Miranda Hart, Jonathan Ross and Nish Kumar to answer questions on art, literature, television, music, geography, politics, science and celebrity from the last 100,000 years of human history. Jimmy is ably assisted by seasoned thesp Charles Dance, veteran newsreader Jon Snow, and the children of Mitchell Brook Primary School, together with a whole host of celebrity question setters. Themes covered include what was said on the first ever phone call, why 1997 was such a big year for chess, and what specifically has not impressed Shania Twain.
