Publisher's Summary

To celebrate 30 years of the extremely popular BBC Radio 4 comedy panel game, this release brings together two special editions, I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue Anniversary Special and I'm Sorry I Haven't a Desert Island, alongside the first ever edition of the programme, originally broadcast on 11 April 1972.

Whilst the anniversary special features the regular team of Tim Brooke-Taylor, Barry Cryer, Graeme Garden, and Humphrey Lyttelton plus guest Stephen Fry, I'm Sorry I Haven't a Desert Island features celebrity selections from the archives, chosen by such famous fans as Dame Judi Dench, Jim Broadbent, and Germaine Greer.

Get Clued Up

You may not listen to Radio 4 and you may not have wondered what happened to the likes of Tim Brooke-Talyor, Graham Garden and Barry Cryer but cast such thoughts aside and treat yourself to comedy anarchy that wears chords and a comfy jumper.

This is one of the few comedy shows that has made me laugh out loud on a Sunday morning (in spite of my hangover). Highlights include rounds such as 'new definitions for words' (such as Tomahawk - a vegetarian bird of prey) and 'sing the lyrics of one song to the tune of another'.

I guarantee that when you have bought the anniversary special you will soon be adding the other volumes to your shopping cart and wondering how a jazz musician host and a smattering of 70s comedy stars can out joke the best of today's comedians.

Great fun as always


A joy for old fans and new. Great to hear Willie Rushton and Humphrey Lyttelton again.

I'm sorry I haven't a clue.

sometimes the silly and irreverent humour just makes you laugh out loud so much that people around you think you are a blithering idiot.
