First starting in 1990, HIGNFY has been part of UK TV schedules for more than 30 years with over 500 episodes to date.

The show originally aired on BBC Two for a decade before moving to BBC One in 2000.

The series was hosted by Angus Deayton up until 2002. Since then a different guest host has been in charge each week.

Episodes see two guests join Ian Hislop and Paul Merton as they’re quizzed on questions related to the week’s biggest new stories.

Regular rounds include ‘The Odd One Out’ where teams must identify what links three of four people, objects or pictures, and ‘Fill In The Blanks’ where the panel must find the missing words in newspaper headlines.

A special documentary, Have I Got 30 Years for You recently aired on BBC One.

The special relives some of the most memorable and controversial moments from three decades of the topical news quiz, with contributions from Ian Hislop, Paul Merton, Gary Lineker, Alexander Armstrong, Camilla Long, Richard Ayoade, and Victoria Coren Mitchell.
