Do The Right Thing

Award-winning comedy panel show hosted by Danielle Ward, with team captains Margaret Cabourn-Smith and Michael Legge and amazing special guests. In it, two teams work out the right thing to do in strange scenarios and scary situations which range from the everyday to the weird and extreme. Don't feel you have to start at the beginning - we'd suggest you start with the most recent series then work backwards!
