Today Sandi and Alan are looking into both privacy, and public events.

Joined tonight by Phill Jupitus, Victoria Coren Mitchell and Bridget Christie, they will be examining the surprisingly early origins of Mexico City’s Day of the Dead carnival, which landlocked country celebrates the Day of the Sea and the unusual tactics used by Spanish debt collectors.

We also get to see Sandi getting very close to a member of the audience, and learn of the Scottish origins of certain Halloween customs.

QI is on BBC Two at 22.00.
