The stars of hidden-camera satire The Revolution Will Be Televised return with a new series, but featuring many of the same characters and ideas.

Jolyon Rubinstein and Heydon Prowse get up close and personal with political figures and big businesses. Among their stunts include trying to provide passengers on Southern Rail ways to pass the time during their delayed commutes, and confronting the head of Google about the company’s tax arrangements.

There is also the appearance of their character creations, old and new: right-wing reporter Dale Maily tries to report on hippies from a festival; Robyn the Corbynite meets the Labour leader at a miners gala; and slacktavist Duckface tries to start a social media campaign to get rid of landmines.

Revolting is on BBC Two at 22.00.
