Both good but different

The News Quiz can be great, but it depends on the panelists. I miss Jeremy Hardy and Mules Jupp was great but could never match Sandi Toksvig. The Now Show can also be great with a good opening and some good guests (less singing more Andy Zaltsman please!).

Scot Abroad

Love this funny update on what’s happening back in the old country. But I always that trouble downloading this on the first night it’s out - on multiple occasions have received an error message.

News quiz only please

Simply put, the news quiz is more enjoyable than the now show in that it is more comprehensive and better high brow humour. It is why as a Canadian I tune into BBC4. News Quiz 5*. Now Show 1*. 4* overall.
