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 includes 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 - and it is the only BBC radio show other than the Proms that can charge for admission!
