Jeremy Hardy returns with a brand-new series that not only seconds that emotion but explains it, too. Yes, BBC Radio 4's most passionate polemicist returns to the airwaves with a new format which promises to be both personal and profound, and to present sides of Jeremy you won't have heard before. He may even sing. (He won't sing.)
The News Quiz and I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue regular, proud progenitor of 10 series of Jeremy Hardy Speaks to the Nation, and winner of numerous awards and almost certainly the Nobel Prize for Chemistry, Jeremy is famous for lines like:
'Kids should never be fashion slaves, especially in the Far East. My 12-year-old daughter asked me for a new pair of trainers. I told her she was old enough to go out and make her own' and, 'Islam is no weirder than Christianity. Both are just Judaism with the jokes taken out.'
His unique worldview once lead him to be likened to 'an incendiary vicar'. Gillian Reynolds called him 'an idealist, a dissenter, a polemicist and moralist - he's a salutary reminder that jokes can, and should, be about big things'.
The show is produced by Jeremy's long-standing accomplice, David Tyler, whose radio credits include Cabin Pressure, John Finnemore's Double Acts, Thanks a Lot, Milton Jones!, Marcus Brigstocke's The Brig Society, Kevin Eldon Will See You Now, Armando Iannucci's Charm Offensive, Giles Wemmbley Hogg Goes Off, The Castle, The 99p Challenge, Deep Trouble, My First Planet, Radio Active and Bigipedia. His TV credits include Paul Merton - the Series, Spitting Image, Absolutely, The Paul Calf Video Diary, Coogan's Run and executive producing Victoria Wood's Dinnerladies.
In the four shows, Jeremy is feeling, in turn, happy, sad, fearful and, finally, hopeful!
