Have I Got News for You

The satirical panel show Have I Got News for You returns for its 67th series, continuing its long-standing tradition of blending news and comedy. Presenting a unique take on the week’s top stories, the show features team captains Ian Hislop and Paul Merton, along with guest panelists comedian Jon Richardson and the BBC’s Disinformation & Social Media Correspondent, Marianna Spring. The guest host for this episode is Clive Myrie, marking his fifth time in the chair.

This series opener promises witty exchanges, satirical discussions, and a focus on topical news stories. The format includes several rounds, such as the “Film Round,” where panelists must identify silent video clips of news reports, and “Round 2,” which centers on discussions and questions about news images. The show also features an introduction and satirical news stories by the host, along with a potential bonus round called the “Caption Competition.”

With its blend of humour and current affairs, Have I Got News for You has become a staple of British television. The show’s format, featuring two teams captained by Hislop and Merton, along with guest panelists, has been a constant since its inception. The guest host role, on the other hand, has been filled by a rotating cast of celebrities since 2002, each bringing their own brand of comedy to the show.

The program has received recognition for its impact on British TV comedy, winning the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2011 British Comedy Awards and the 2016 BAFTA Television Award for Comedy and Comedy Entertainment Programme.
