Beat the Kids


Graeme Garden


BBC Radio 4, 7 April to 12 May 2004 (6 episodes in 1 series)


Comedy quiz, billed (atrociously) as "Ask the Family meets The Simpsons".

Four comedians pretend to be a team of parents and children in a quiz game hosted by Graeme Garden posing as Dr G, a "parentologist". The whole thing is played out more as scripted prose in the form of a panel game, which possibly explains why it wasn't very funny. It also gives a reason as to why there's pitifully little genuine interaction between the players. The tasks usually revolved around family situations, such as kids trying to get off doing their homework.

Safe to say episodes of this won't be troubling UKNova in the near future.
