    Description"I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue" is the most listened to comedy programme on British radio. It regularly attracts an audience of 2.5 million listeners on Radio 4, a figure that would put it comfortably into the top ten programmes on BBC2 or Channel 4. The format of the game is very simple: four players - Graeme Garden, Tim Brooke Taylor, Barry Cryer and a guest are given silly things to do by the Chairman Jack Dee, with Colin Sell setting some of them to music. "Clue" continues to enjoy a long and successful run on BBC Radio 4, and in 2007 the show took on a new life with the first of many national tours, playing to 2500-seat theatres across the country. With the 40th anniversary this autumn, the world of "Clue" continues to expand and evolve, constantly creating new games and welcoming a new generation of "Clue" players, attracting new fans along the way.

    Review quote
    "The funniest comedy quiz show of them all" -- Sue Arnold The Observer "The national theatre of fun" -- Gillian Reynolds Daily Telegraph "One day people will envy us for living through the years when this magnificent half hour enlivened every Sunday" -- Sue Gaisford Independent on Sunday "The most genuinely and infallibly cheering programme on radio" -- Nigel Andrew Daily Mail "Those who like radio shows to remain aural rather than visual, may feel they should give this solid compendium a wide berth. But they'll be missing a treat. I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue contains the best of 40 years of this most listened to comedy programme on British radio, and remains even after nearly 300 pages of photographic illustration and written explanation, something of an enigma. Of course, if you're a fan, the barmy goings on involving a quartet of players (Graeme Garden, Tim Brooke-Taylor, Barry Cryer and a guest) engages in quiz rounds of 'handy hints' (how can I ensure my lipstick lasts longer? Just do one lip), 'Pensioners Songbook' (I can see clearly now the specs have come...), 'Killer First Lines' (Waiting for Godot: 'Hello Godot...') and 'Mornington Crescent' (there never has been an explanation for this one) will be reassuringly familiar, a reminder that British comedy used to be funny. For those who happen on this book unawares, it'll open up a whole new world of (largely) oldie hilarity and excellent jokes" The Lady
