The Department is a secret organisation with the power to influence every aspect of your life. At its heart is Research Team 32, an eccentric three-man think-tank with the brief to brainstorm new ideas on solving society’s problems. Forget Government. Forget Parliament. Your future is in their hands.

The Department is written and performed by Chris Addison, John Oliver and Andy Zaltzman, with Peter Dickson, Matthew Holness and Lucy Montgomery.
