Private Eye: A Cartoon History

Editor Ian Hislop and cartoonist and writer Nick Newman discuss a new collection of some of the funniest and most influential examples of the 30,000 Private Eye cartoons published in the last 50 years - from royality and politics to yobs and giant hedgehogs.

Chaired by Libby Purves.
