Mornington Crescent is a game whose rules and history are shrouded in myth and mystery. Now, in this extended version of a spoof documentary first aired on BBC Radio 4, the research team from
I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue shine a light in the dark. As if that wasn't enough, Humphrey Lyttelton, Graeme Garden, Tim Brooke-Taylor, and Barry Cryer also provide readings from two learned books on the subject:
The Little Book of Mornington Crescent and
Stovold's Mornington Crescent Almanac. From Roman times to Chaucer and beyond, Mornington Crescent has become a legend in its own tube stop. Now, at last, its true history can be told.
