According to The Officially Unofficial I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue Web Pages (www.isihac.co.uk), the tribute show by the ISIHAC teams originally announced for this coming Sunday will now be part of BBC Radio 4's Humphrey Lyttelton Day on Sunday 15th June. The show is called "Chairman Humph - a Tribute" and will start at noon.
In ISIHAC Merchandise News:
* The New Uxbridge English Dictionary's publication date was yesterday (May 6th). Amazon.co.uk currently is reporting a 1-2 week delay before they'll have the books in stock. http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-New-Uxbridge-English-Dictionary/dp/0007263937/
* "Iím Sorry I Haven't A Clue Collection 3" was released on March 3rd. This is a boxed set of the previously released volumes 7, 8, & 9 (each of which is a 2 CD set). http://www.amazon.co.uk/Im-Sorry-Havent-Clue-Collection/dp/0563510420/
* "I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue Live Vol. 2" is a 2 CD set scheduled for release on July 10th. This release has been scheduled for a while; I forgot to mention it to the fan club when I first noticed it. I wanted to ensure people didn't think this is a new item being rushed out due to Humph having passed away.
This will be like ISIHAC Live Vol. 1, as explained in the official blurb (from http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sorry-Havent-Clue-Live-Collection/dp/140568836X/): "This is a second volume of two specially compiled, extended-length shows from Jon Naismith's production archive, featuring out-takes, ad libs and audience interaction from the Clue team. Taken from the early 1990s, these shows (edition dates t.b.c.) feature the classic Clue line up of Humphrey Lyttelton, Graeme Garden, Barry Cryer, Tim Brooke-Taylor, Jeremy Hardy and the much-missed Willie Rushton. It may contain swearing."
* Amazon.co.uk has updated their description for the book, "The Doings of Hamish and Dougal: You'll Have Had Your Tea?", which is scheduled to be published on August 28th. The listing (at http://www.amazon.co.uk/Doings-Hamish-Dougal-Youll-Have/dp/1848090234/) now includes an image of the book's cover and this description:
"Hello there! You'll have had your tea? Dougal here. Well, here we go, with our wee book. It's a collection or pot pourri (I've no idea what Hamish means by that - it sounds like something to do with the Pope) of our activities or 'doings' in the village we call home, because that's exactly what it is. Together with our housekeeper, Mrs Naughtie, and of course, the Laird who lives up at the big hoose and shoots grouse and other bottles of whisky, these are the actual scripts of our wee show which we performed on the wireless, when most of you were probably in bed! Hamish and I have known each other all our lives - well, not yet, obviously! We have a very close relationship and also with each other. Mrs Naughtie been with us since we first met her at the Krankie Arms, where she was working as part-time barmaid and bouncer.In addition to the scripts you'll find all kinds of other things tucked away under its kilt. There's a hectic social life in the village. You'll visit the 'bide a wee' cafe, proud possessor of three Michelin tyres. You'll have a conducted tour of the big hoose by Big Tam, our local guide (not during opening hours).
You'll marvel at the site of the Battle of Auchtermuchty, now allotments. You'll peek into the Laird's social diary in 'oot and aboot' (40p at the post office). And a great deal more. Well, I hope this wee note will make you hurry to the till and spend the terrible amount of money these wee books cost these days. But then again this particular wee book is Scotland's answer to Richard and Judy! Hurrah! Away now."
