new recording --- or not?

There are some pics and tweets of what looks like a JAM recording at the Oxford Literary Festival at the weekend. The team was Tony Hawks, Pam Ayres, Miles Jupp and the writer Felix Francis. It looks like a recording - the only thing that makes me suspicious is that sitting beside Nicholas is his wife Annie, blowing the whistle and keeping score!

Anyone know if this was a recording or just one of the occasional shows JAM puts on?

I hadn't seen Nicholas's wife before.

As she was the whistleblower I assume the game(s) was(/were) solely for the those present.

Felix Francis's face baffled me when I saw the photos of that event.

I haven't read his books.

I think it was specifically for the Oxford literary festival. I think they also did it last year.

It was just for the festival. I was in the audience. They played 2 games and I can't remember now who won, but I do remember Tony being particularly funny!
