'I'm sorry I haven't a clue' also called 'clue' for short and sometimes simply 'ISIHAC' is a BBC4 Radio panel game that has been running since 1972. Each week the game has 2 teams comprising of a pair of comedians who are given sometimes daft yet highly humourous tasks to do by the 'Chairman'. ..." Read review

The Funniest programme on the airwaves

AdvantagesYou'll piss yourself laughing.

DisadvantagesYou'll piss yourself laughing.

"I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue (ISIHAC) is the "antidote to panel games" in which four celebrities (and I use the term wrongly) are given silly things to do by 80-year-old chairman Humphrey Lyttelton until his assistant-cum-score-keeper, the lovely Samantha, blows his horn. ISIHAC, a spin off of I'm Sorry I'll Read That Again, was devised by Graeme Garden, and first broadcast on Tuesday 11th April 1972. The other two Goodies (Bill Oddie and Tim ..." Read review

I'm sorry... but this is fantastic.

AdvantagesSide-splittingly funny

DisadvantagesMay irritate those who don't appreciate in-jokes / double entendre

The Samantha and Colin Sell Fan Club

AdvantagesIt's just so funny

DisadvantagesThe seasons are very short

"If you grant me a modicum of leeway, I will introduce you to something which, until now, has only been the preserve of the learned and initiate, among whose number I happily include myself. If you don your deerstalker and look and listen carefully, you will find, among the schedules of Radio 4, a programme which provides intellectual stimulation to many thousands of people. This isn't 'A Book at Bedtime' (I prefer a nice mug of Ovaltine), or 'The ..." Read review

Being Given Silly Things To Do

AdvantagesRadio is the perfect medium for innuendo

DisadvantagesR4 has an image problem

"I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue is one of many R4 “Comedy Slot” programmes that has been running for years under the sardonic chairmanship of Humphrey Littleton. The panellists are normally Graeme Garden, Tim Brooke-Taylor, Barry Cryer and others. To mis-quote the end credits, “The teams are given silly things to do by Humphrey Littleton” These include playing “Mornington Crescent, a board game which sounds quite sensible and erudite until you realise ..."
