    The Rest is Entertainment - Following on from Rory Smith and Alistair Campbell with politics, and Tom Holland and Dominic Sandbrook with history, quiz master and television expert Richard Osman and Guardian columnist Marina Hyde have now teamed up together to dissect the world of entertainment.
