Heresy is a comedy talk show on BBC Radio 4, created and originally hosted by David Baddiel, later hosted by Victoria Coren. In the show, the presenter and a panel of guests commit "heresy" by challenging people's most deeply received opinions on a subject, in front of a studio audience. In the fifth series, Baddiel handed over the host's chair to Coren, although he has since occasionally appeared on the show as a guest. The latest, 12th series began broadcast in Spring 2022.

Set in a small airline business, Cabin Pressure is a comedy about the wing and a prayer world of a tiny, one-plane charter airline staffed by two pilots - one on his way down, and one who was never up to start with. Whether they're flying squaddies to Hamburg, metal sheets to Mozambique, transporting lads on a stag night or shifting a panther for the odd oil sheik, no job is too small - but many jobs prove to be too difficult - for MJN Air!
