""It's a great missing piece of the jigsaw people go on endlessly about Python and Peter Cook, which is all well and good but there's basically this great corpus of work stretching for decades and consistently good. I mean very very few traditions I can't think of one! I mean, Christ, it's forty-five years! A major piece of work, and universally loved." So says John Lloyd, brains behind Blackadder, QI, Spitting Image, and so much besides all shows with a massive debt to I m Sorry I ll Read That Again and I m Sorry I Haven t A Clue. Together they form a body of work stretching across five decades, from Cambridge in 1960 to today s world-beating Antidote to Panel Games, a laughter-bringer which has inspired unparalleled adoration in millions over fifty series. The I m Sorry Bible tells the whole story, from Footlights to Broadway to the ferret-filled madness of Radio Prune comedy s answer to the rock & roll revolution of the sixties. Offering an exhaustive guide to the comedy world that brought us Mornington Crescent, besides episode guides, glossaries and rare facsimiles, the Bible will take the story right up to the present day, celebrating the lives of Willie Rus

"Were it not for Jem Roberts and his encyclopaedic knowledge of Clue - its dizzying array of antecedents, its career on radio and on the road and its inside information on the regular members of the cast, past and present - my memory of that particular show and of many another high spot, would be a lot hazier than it is now" * Daily Mail *
"A gift for Clue obsessives" * Sunday Times *
