BBC Radio 4 has done a number of these sorts of shows in the past,
although not recently that I can recall.  You might still hear them
from time to time on 4 Extra.  They have also commissioned sendups of
other media; I remember "The Sunday Format" from several years ago
(skewering local newspapers' Sunday editions).
