Dear I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue Mailing List Member
This is the last mailout of 2008.
Firstly we'd like to tell you that 2 entertain (co-owned by BBC Worldwide) have recently published the long-awaited DVD of I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue. It was filmed at the Lowry Centre on Sunday 6th April, just ten days before Humph went into hospital. It has been listed at No 1 in the The Independent's selection of 'The Ten Best Comedy DVDs' and Time Out say of it that the team "really are as funny as the sound on the radio; there's no snappy editing here, this is just 100 minute of improvised brilliance". The DVD distributor has arranged a discount of £3.75 to members of this mailing list if you purchase the DVD from the BBC Shop online. Here's how you do it:
1. Log onto the ISIHAC DVD link at the BBC Shop by clicking here:
2. Keep clicking 'Checkout' until you get the the page saying 'Please sign in' when you add your email address, and if you're not a returning customer, click 'Checkout as guest', or set up an account. It'll then ask you to add some details, address, phone number etc.
3. When you get to the page, 'Order Summary', click on the option 'Redeem a Promotion Code' under the red banner heading saying 'Additional Services'. In the box provided type in the code: ISIHAC08 and click 'Continue'
The £3.75 off your order is as follows: £1.30 is 10% off the DVD which they are currently selling at £12.99 and remaining £2.45 is the price of the postage. The offer expires 31st December - a user can use the code only once - this code is exclusive to the ISIHAC DVD.
Secondly, Random House Books would like you to know that they are offering 'Lyttelton's Britain' (Humphrey's collected opening histories to all the towns and cities we visited during his chairmanship of the show) and Barry and Graeme's new Hamish & Dougal Book as a "2 for 1" offer. It works out a couple of pounds cheaper than Amazon and there are no product codes required. Both are hardbacks. Here's the link:
Thirdly, free tickets have just become available for a one-off Christmas Special of 'The Unbelievable Truth', the Radio 4 panel game devised by Graeme Garden and myself, which we're recording on Wednesday 3rd December 2008 at the Shaw Theatre in Euston Road (doors open, recording starts 7.30pm). It's hosted by the excellent David Mitchell, and the panel includes Graeme Garden and Jack Dee. You'll need to order swiftly as there's only 400 available and they'll go quickly. Here's a link:
Fourthly, there are two other excellent ISIHAC-related books that would make good Xmas presents. The first is 'The New Uxbridge English Dictionary':
And the other is: 'Last Chorus: An Autobiographical Medley', a collection of Humph's writings by his son Stephen, which includes many Humph cartoons, photos and some fascinating previously unpublished diaries:
Fifthly, in response to a request by many of you for the date when BBC4 will be repeating the Humphrey Lyttelton Tribute documentary - the latest from BBC4 is that this will now happen on Tuesday 16th December at 8pm.
And finally, Jeremy Hardy has asked me to let you know that he is on tour and hopes you might be able to catch his show at a theatre near you. Here are the dates:
And that's about the size of it once more. Here's wishing you a very Merry Christmas. We look forward to seeing you once again in 2009.
With best wishes
Producer, "I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue"
