Comedian Griff Rhys Jones hosts this brand new comedy panel show using archive TV clips to challenge players to give A Short History of Everything Else.

Commissioned by Ralph Lee, Channel 4’s Head of Factual, this six-part series delves into our shared history through a mixture of memorable, odd and forgotten clips, throwing new and alternative perspectives onto our past.

Each week Griff is joined by two regular team captains, Marcus Brigstocke (Have I Got News For You, Argumental) and Charlie Baker (Never Mind the Buzzcocks, Home for the Holidays), who, along with a guest, try to prove that they remember more about ‘everything else’ than the other team, adding their own irreverent interpretations along the way.

A Short History of Everything Else provides an alternative view on our social history. Along with the archive gems, the banter from Griff and the panel brings to life and celebrates the last few decades – from the sublime to the ridiculous, and the serious to the highly questionable.
