Yet another "I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue" item to add to your holiday shopping list - The "Humph in Wonderland" special, which was originally broadcast on Christmas 2007, is scheduled to be released on CD on November 13th. Note that the CD will include an extra 20 minutes of bonus material not heard in the broadcast.
Here's the blurb from Amazon (at http://www.amazon.co.uk/Im-Sorry-Havent-Clue-Wonderland/dp/1408426005/):
"The "I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue" team present their unique take on "Alice in Wonderland" in this BBC Radio 4 special. "Humph in Wonderland" stars chairman Humphrey Lyttelton in the title role, with Tony Hawks as the Narrator, Sandi Toksvig as the Queen of Hearts, Tim Brooke-Taylor as the Duchess, Graeme Garden as the Cook and Barry Cryer as Humpty Dumpty, Andy Hamilton also features as the Caterpillar, with Rob Brydon as the Mad Hatter, Jeremy Hardy as the March Hare, Jack Dee as the Cheshire Cat and Colin Sell as the White Rabbit. Among the fun and games are: Mornington Crescent, Swanee Kazoo, Cheddar Gorge, new definitions for the "Uxbridge English Dictionary", as well as Recipes for Nigella Lawson's "Saucy Mouthfuls" (she makes a great sticky tart). Including 20 minutes of bonus material not heard on transmission, this thoroughly daft take on Lewis Carroll is also a fitting tribute to the late, and much-missed, Humphrey Lyttelton."
