I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue, Series 1 & 2
From 1972, Humphrey Littleton kicks off the classic radio show

"The antidote to panel games", I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue is a BBC radio comedy show. It consists of two teams of two comedians "given silly things to do" by a chairman. The show launched in April 1972 as a parody of radio and TV panel games, and has been broadcast ever since on BBC Radio 4 and the BBC World Service.

I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue developed from the long-running radio sketch show I'm Sorry, I'll Read That Again, the writers of which were John Cleese, Jo Kendall, David Hatch, Bill Oddie, Tim Brooke-Taylor and Graeme Garden. It was Garden who suggested the idea of an unscripted show which, it was decided, would take the form of a parody panel game.

The show has over two million listeners on Radio 4 and its recording sessions typically fill 1500-seat theatres within a week of being advertised. The show was recently voted the second funniest radio programme ever, after The Goon Show.
