Robyn has a tough time of it in Flack, with her misdemeanors landing her in a narcotics anonymous meeting after a heavy night on the town. Ted Bundy: Serial Monster continues its chilling exploration of the sinister murders of Bundy providing us with full and unflinching insight in to the most notorious mass murderer of the century. Hypothetical gains momentum on Dave, as Acaster and Widdicombe invent completely made up situations to their panel of eager comedians. Hitler’s Propaganda Machine transports us to the warped and sinister climate of Nazi Germany during the height of the Third Reich, where concealment and lies were the order of the day.
Robyn is a flack: a PR, who promotes, publicises and protects her clients. It’s her job to fix other people’s lives, despite the fact she is incapable of fixing her own. Robyn’s (Anna Paquin) reverie about taking drugs in a noisy nightclub is interrupted as she comes round and realises she is in fact at an NA meeting in a community centre. Trying to turn off her persistently ringing phone in her handbag, Robyn inadvertently tips out a cocaine bullet, much to the amusement of Tom (Marc Warren), the man sitting next to her at an NA meeting.
Ted Bundy: Serial Monster
Beautiful women are disappearing, found murdered throughout the Pacific Northwest. Police have little to go on, but similarities come to light: a charming, handsome stranger with a broken arm and a Volkswagen Bug. But the crazed murderer stays one step ahead of the authorities, leading to a devastating sorority house massacre on the other side of the country. You might think this is the plot of a horror film, but it’s all too real. This shocking documentary, told with interviews and dramatic reconstructions, is the true story of Ted Bundy: Serial Monster.
Hosted by Josh Widdicombe and James Acaster, top comedians are posed absurd hypothetical situations and scored on how well they would deal with them. Over three hilarious rounds, two teams of comedians must think fast as they are faced with a series of completely made-up scenarios and interrogated on their approach to each one. Host Josh Widdicombe poses the questions and interrogates the guests’ methods, while James Acaster, as arbiter of the Hypotheticals, deals with the guests quibbles and queries and doles out the points.
Hitler's Propaganda Machine
Wednesday 27th February, 8pm
Power, terror, performance: these notions define our perception of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party at the height of the Third Reich. But, behind this was an ordinary man. This compelling series tells the story of one of the most comprehensive, wide-reaching and successful marketing campaigns in modern history: the rise of Adolf Hitler. It was fuelled by a mastery of propaganda techniques that preyed on the discontent of the German people: Nazi ideology was cleverly packaged and sold to the masses, which created and propped up a regime built on hatred and mistrust.
