Four classic episodes of the popular BBC Radio 4 panel game.
5 January 1977/8 January 1980/11 March 1980/23 June 1988
Nicholas Parsons chairs four archive episodes of the evergreen BBC Radio 4 comedy panel game, featuring the four original regular players of the game: Clement Freud, Peter Jones, Derek Nimmo and Kenneth Williams. These specially selected episodes, all published for the first time, see the formidable foursome squaring up to eachother in a battle of wits – and wit.
As they endeavour to prevent each other from talking for the full minute, topics introduced – and swiftly dismissed – include Bath Night, Donald Duck, Getting in a Frenzy, Gooey Buns, My Accolade, The MostPleasing City I Have Visited, Getting Uptight and Poppadoms.
Camaraderie, competition and brilliant banter are the order of the day, as these sparkling raconteurs come out with some of their best andfunniest lines and demonstrate their quick thinking and wonderful way with words. Full of comic gems and irreverent fun, these four classic shows are a delight to listen to.
