A bumper collection of classic fun and games from one of BBC Radio 4's best-loved and most enduring comedy panel games. The inimitable Humphrey Lyttelton is in the chair for these 36 hilarious editions, collected together for the first time. He presides over regular players Tim Brooke-Taylor, Barry Cryer, Graeme Garden and Willie Rushton, plus guests including Stephen Fry, Tony Hawks, Andy Hamilton, Paul Merton, Sandi Toksvig and Jeremy Hardy.
This 13th collection of the antidote to panel games finds Jack Dee giving regular panellists Tim Brooke-Taylor, Barry Cryer and Graeme Garden silly things to do - along with special guests Jeremy Hardy, Sandi Toksvig, Rob Brydon and David Mitchell. Highlights include ‘Uxbridge English Dictionary’, ‘One Song to the Tune of Another’, ‘Sound Charades’, ‘Historical Voicemail’, ‘Bankers’ Film Club’, ‘Sound Effects Storytime’, ‘Party Guests’, ‘84 Chicken Cross Road’, ‘Trail of the Lonesome Pun’,
Due to popular demand, and after a long break, here is a fifth volume of episodes from the irreverent radio comedy series that ran between 1964 and 1973. Starring John Cleese, Tim Brooke-Taylor, Graeme Garden, David Hatch, Jo Kendall, and Bill Oddie, ISIRTA is a mix of quick-fire sketches, bad puns, humorous songs, and TV and cinema parodies. It quickly developed a cult following, and was the forerunner of The Goodies and I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue.
Four more shows from the groundbreaking BBC Radio series. Described by Barry Took as 'A kaleidoscope of funny voices, catch phrase and innuendo revolving at breakneck speed and with a complete disregard for logic', I'm Sorry I'll Read That Again pre-dated I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue and showcased the comic talents of Tim Brooke-Taylor, John Cleese, Graeme Garden, David Hatch, Jo Kendall, and Bill Oddie.
"Great show - beware duplicate material"
Four more extended episodes from the award-winning BBC Radio 4 series specially compiled by producer Jon Naismith. In this 15th collection of the perennial antidote to panel games, regular panellists Tim Brooke-Taylor, Barry Cryer, and Graeme Garden - plus guests - are given silly and hilarious things to do. Listeners will know to expect inspired nonsense, pointless revelry, and Colin Sell at the piano.
The show that grabs listeners by the waist, swirls them round in time to a Strauss waltz, and then trips over the banana skins of convention.
Sorry I Haven't a Clue has Radio Four's highest listening figures for light entertainment and won the 1998 Voice of the Listener and Viewer for top radio show.
"I'm sorry I haven't a clue (4)"
Inspired nonsense and pointless revelry, it's time for another helping of the antidote to panel games, I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue. In this ninth collection, the gang returns for further moments of mayhem, puns, and one-liners; not forgetting a healthy dose of innuendo and double entendre.
Often imitated but never bettered, I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue is the only authentic antidote to panel games. This collection finds unflappable chairman Humphrey Lyttelton giving silly things to do to regular panelists Tim Brooke-Taylor, Barry Cryer and Graeme Garden, as well as special guests Stephen Fry and Rob Brydon. Highlights include old favourites such as One Song to the Tune of Another, 84 Chicken Cross Road, Sound Charades, New Definitions and of course the brilliantly baffling, fiendishly funny Mornington Crescent.
Dark Space 8 - an advanced monitoring station floating serenely among the stars. Its crew - a dedicated and highly skilled group of professionals calmly going about their vital work. Its mission - to boldly host the Intergalactic Song Contest. With representatives from myriad worlds competing, the eyes of the universe are on the station. But dark deeds are afoot aboard Dark Space 8...and people are starting to die.
The show that holds a mirror up to nature and then proceeds to give it a rather embarrassing haircut.
Hamish and Dougal, two elderly Scotsmen played by Barry Cryer and Graeme Garden, have for many years been a popular feature of the hit BBC Radio 4 comedy show I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue. Now they've got their own series. Regular characters appearing with Hamish and Dougal include Mrs Naughtie, a cleaning lady-cum-housekeeper played by Alison Steadman, and a local laird played by Jeremy Hardy.
