And Now In Colour
1990s BBC Radio 4 sketch show by The Throbbs

BBC Radio 4 sketch show written and performed by comedy quartet The Throbbs (Tim Firth, Tim de Jongh, Michael Rutger and William Vandyck), broadcast in two series (1990 & 1991) of six episodes each plus two Christmas episodes. Similar in comedy style to three contemporary sketch shows - Radio 1's "The Mary Whitehouse Experience", Radio 4's "The Skivers" and TV Channel 4's "Absolutely", it featured quick-fire sketches loosely connected by a narrative thread (usually involving taking the entire audience out of the studio and losing them), plus songs by Tim Firth.
