Mitch Benn

“I’m a sceptic. But don’t take my word for it. Or indeed anybody’s. For anything....” Mitch debunks myths, exposes nonsense and grapples with the very nature of knowledge itself, extolling the virtues of an evidence-based approach to life.... with amusing consequences and of course a few songs along the way.

The ‘Now Show’ aside, Mitch has recently co-presented BBC Radio 2’s ‘Anatomy Of A Guitar’ with Harry Shearer as well as performing ‘Mitch Benn Is The 37th Beatle’ and presenting ‘Spank The Plank’ both for BBC Radio 4..

Chris Helme

Chris Helme first rose to prominence as the front man of John Squire’s post-Stone Roses band ‘The Seahorses’.

Now solo, he is rightfully remembered for Britpop classics Love Is The Law and Blinded By The Sun - songs that evoked everything the 90s stood for - the excitement, the culture and the bands that provided a voice in a period of political and social imbalance.

Chris is well established as a solo performer with a wealth of songs to hand and a truly special voice.

Quiet Violence


Squeezed between tight jeans, jenga block flats and dinosaur ham, a young woman is making bad decisions and an old man is eating too much cheese.

They're sharing biscuits on an inflatable sofa; something has to pop.

Fast, physical and full of anarchic poetry, shards of life collide in this powerful story of punishment and rescue.

Free hobnobs, guys!

On This Week

 Film: Wild (15)

With the end of her marriage and the death of her beloved mother (Laura Dern), Cheryl Strayed (Reese Witherspoon) has lost hope. After years of reckless, self-destructive behaviour, she makes a rash decision. With no outdoors experience, a heavy backpack and little else to go on but sheer determination, Cheryl hikes more than a thousand miles of the Pacific Crest Trail, alone.

Witherspoon was nominated for an Academy award for her ability to powerfully capture the terrors and pleasures of one young woman on a journey against all odds that maddens, strengthens, and ultimately heals her.
