Harry and Stripe, you're both absolutely brilliant. Was ill and this was a comfort. I can't believe you managed to find Sam Simmons, that was a rare catch.

Been looking for a couple of things- anyone happen to have either 12/13 of Readon's week or Sam Simmons is not a People person?

Pigman, you may be right about series 4, I haven't reached it yet, all I meant about series 3 was that the second episode should have been kept until the end of the series.

I certainly felt that the joke was wearing thin by Series 3, and Series 4 was definitely a series too far.

I've recently started listening to Absolute Power again for the first time in several years, and I'm currently in the middle of series 3. Does anyone else think that episode 2, "Health Service" should have been the series finale? It has that feel to it.

Having been on the road for a couple of weeks, I missed the uncensored Heresy S11E01, and Golux's link is now not working. Could someone please share...

That's odd, Heresy S11E01 was available on iPlayer/BBCSounds yesterday but now it's gone. Possibly due to furore over Jo Brand's "battery acid" remark? Perhaps it will reappear soon with something less outrageous at the 5.09mins mark? If so, then this will forever be "the rare uncensored version" -

Hi, I don't suppose anybody went old school and recorded the new episode of Heresy on Tuesday. It's not available on BBC Sounds. Thanks.

I wonder if any one could help me with Life on Egg series 1? I think I dismissed it at the time, but found series 2 quite appealing. Thanks in advance

Thanks for the suggestion. I think I know ISIRTA by heart and it's definitely not Mr Cleese.
I think it's more recent. no older than a few years.

Liam

I've not heard that "News For Puritans" sketch before, but I can picture it in John Cleese's voice, could it be from ISIRTA?

Help! What was the "News for Puritans" sketch?

I am trying to find a sketch from a radio comedy show. I thought it was from John Finnemore's Souvenir Programme but it's not mentioned in the listings. In my head it sounds like it was delivered by one of the men on JFSP, I wonder if it was one of the sketches listed as "Lawry's Bits".
It was something along the lines of "TRAFFIC NEWS FOR PURITANS - THERE IS NO TRAFFIC NEWS BECAUSE YOU WILL BE WALKING EVERYWHERE IN YOUR BLACK SHOES WITH BIG BUCKLES - NEXT UP, FASHION NEWS FOR PURITANS, HOW TO CHOOSE A BIG BLACK HAT TO MATCH YOUR BLACK SHOES WITH BIG BUCKLES" etc

Can anyone tell me where to find this sketch? I'm sure I have it in my collection but just can't place it.

Once again I find myself asking for help to fill some gaps left after the "great hard drive crash".

Could somebody help me fill the gaps in the 216 part history of Britain "This Sceptred Isle" please? For some reason I'm missing Parts 34, 36, 37, 38, 131 - 140 and 161-170.

Many thanks.

Radio Times Comedy Classics Tape
I’m spending my bank Holladay ripping all my old cassettes to mp3 and one of them was the Radio Times Comedy Classics Tape which is a compilation of skits introduced by Paul Merton. I was free to readers of the radio times in 1993, I thought someone might be interested. Hope you Enjoy!
