Are We Live? is a book about all the things that can and have gone wrong in a broadcasting studio. And, boy, has a lot of stuff gone wrong! Whether it's BBC Radio 4's appropriately-named James Naughtie dropping the c-bomb on the usually prudent Today programme, or an Antiques Roadshow ceramic expert mistakenly describing a piece of Victoria Regina porcelain as 'Rictoria Vagina', Are We Live? takes in the full spectrum of comedy gold captured on film - whether intentional or not!
