Im sorry i havent a clue History

Im sorry i havent a clue is a BBC radio comedy panel game. Billed as “the antidote to panel games”, it consists of two teams of two comedians “given silly things to do” by a chairman.

The Im sorry i havent a clue show was launched in April 1972 as a parody of radio and TV panel games, and has been broadcast since on BBC Radio 4 and the BBC World Service, with repeats aired on BBC Radio 4 Extra and, in the 1980s and 1990s, on BBC Radio 2. The 50th series was broadcast in November and December 2007.

Im sorry i havent 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 especially Graeme Garden who suggested the idea of an unscripted show which, it was decided, would take the form of a parody panel game.
