All Clued Up

We saw ISIHAC being recorded last night at the Peterborough Broadway Theatre.

We saw two shows recorded, each one took about an hour, an hour 10. A lot of material to edit down to 28 minutes. Humphrey Lyttleton seemed to be still suffering from a sore throat as he had in this Monday's recording (3/12/07) although he strode on stage with a vigour that belies his years. Andy Hamilton liberally made teddy bear jokes through out the recordings, I wonder how many of those will survive to the final broadcast? We got a round of all the main games over the two recordings, Mornington Crescent, One Tune to the Name of Another, Swanee Kazoo and Pick Up Sticks. Hamish and Dougal made an appearance but Tim Brook Taylor was on his way to the Galapagos Islands for a holiday so Jack Dee (or was it Andy Hamilton) stood in for him. The Laser Display Board was as amazing as I had imagined and the money spent on it was obvious.

Several persons have expressed jealousy that we were able to get tickets, I'll let you into a little secret it's because we are on the I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue mailing list and if you want to join it sent an email stating that you would like to join the list to imsorryihaventaclue "at" bbc "dot" co "dot" uk


  1. I went to see gardeners qustion time once, but it wasn't quite the same.

    Thanks for the info, I shall get my name down sharpish.

  2. i'm so envious and will sign up immediately! when was the last time you remember the lovely sven being there instead of samantha? i think we should be told...

  3. I've not heard Sven in a long while I think he must have returned to Sweden some time in the late 90's. I suppose I could google it but that would be cheating.

    Dan - I could imagine that the energy levels could be quite different between the two.

  4. Stage door gossip suggests that Sven iss more likely to make a reappearance with a female guest. ;)
