Dara O'Briain is hosting BBC anniversary quiz
The 90-minute quiz entitled All About Two will survey the history and present status of the channel, including special guests

Right now all Irish people are uttering the words “Dara is doing very well for himself, isn’t he?” There is an obvious truth in the much repeated comment, as the stand-up comedian and presenter has become one of the leading TV presences in Britain and Ireland since touring with his Edinburgh sell-out stand-up show nearly a decade ago, and his acquiring of the Mock the Week presenter slot. His latest strike has been snagging the host job for BBC Two’s 50-year anniversary.

The line-up for the show includes Harry Enfield and Paul Whitehouse's archive trawl and homage Harry and Paul's Story of the Twos; the reunion of the cast of Goodness Gracious Me; 50 Years of BBC Two Comedy; 50 Years of Sport on BBC Two and Pop Goes BBC Two.

The BBC describes the event, “With Richard Osman (Pointless) supplying extra facts and figures, celebrity teams and guest spots from the channel's past and present, All About Two tells you everything you've ever wanted to know about the channel but didn't know you wanted to ask.”
