BBC Two will air a special edition of Charlie Brooker's show Screenwipe this year.

Charlie Brooker's 2010 Wipe will examine the year in news, television, games and films.

Brooker will be joined by guests including Grace Dent, who will examine the year's soaps. Investigative journalist Nick Davies will discuss the alleged News of the World phone hacking, while comedian Doug Stanhope will talk about the BP oil disaster.

Other topics expected to be explored include the Chilean miners, the elections and the Pope's visit. Brooker's regular guest Tim Key will also make an appearance.

Brooker said: "For those who don't have the patience to relive the entire year in real time, 2010 Wipe will condense the whole of 2010 into one compact, easily-digestible package. Think of it as a souvenir, if that helps. We'll be looking back at the year before it's even finished and pointing and laughing at various bits of it like the repugnant animals we are."

Previous editions of Screenwipe have aired on BBC Four, but the new episode will premiere on BBC Two.
