Summary

Mornington Crescent is a game whose rules and history are shrouded in myth and legend. Games can last as long as a few minutes and the best rival chess in their intellectual dexterity, poker in their subtlety and cunning and Ker-Plunk! in their ability to turn youth and age into one harmonious sort of thing. This book is a history of the game and a study of the great players who have graced the game over nearly a century. It will include testimony from today's great exponents and hints from the professionals on how to play the game more effectively. I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue is the most listened-to comedy programme on British radio, an institution with regular panellists Tim Brooke-Taylor, Graeme Garden, Barry Cryer and until 1996 Willie Rushton, being given silly things to do by jazz supremo Humphrey Lyttelton. Listener figures are now over 2 million each week. Tickets are so keenly sought after shows are now held in 1500 seat theatres around the country and it is the only BBC radio show other than the Proms that can charge for admission.
