I'm Sorry I'll Read That Again
For those who missed it, ISIRTA (as we called it) was a top radio comedy show in the 1960s and early-70s starring Bill Oddie, Tim Brooke-Taylor, Graeme Garden, John Cleese, Jo Kendall and David Hatch. Long since overshadowed by its spin-off, 'the antidote to panel games' I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue, it was effectively the missing link between The Goons and The Goodies, though the presence of Cleese allowed it also to pose as an ancestor of Monty Python.
Most of the humor was derived from dreadful puns, accompanied by songs from Bill Oddie (including his famous version of 'On Ilkley Moor' in the style of Joe Cocker), and it was good-natured if dated fun. The highpoint was undoubtedly Tim Brooke-Taylor's character Lady Constance, who pre-dated Ann Widdecombe by quarter of a century.
