Jeremy Hardy Speaks to the Nation: The Complete Series 1-10: The BBC Radio 4 comedy series Audiobook

Jeremy Hardy Speaks to the Nation: The Complete Series 1-10: The BBC Radio 4 comedy series

Author: Jeremy Hardy Narrator: Jeremy Hardy Release Date: September 2021

'The master of quietly inflammatory comedy' - The Evening Standard 'Made me drop the kettle in shock, but worth it' - The Daily Telegraph Few can forget where they were in September 1993 when they first heard Jeremy Hardy Speaks to the Nation. The show was an immediate smash-hit success, causing pubs to empty on a Saturday night, which was particularly astonishing since the show went out on Thursdays. Since that fateful first series, the show has gone on to win Sony awards, Writers Guild nominations and a Nobel Prize for Chemistry with lines like - 'Kids should never be fashion slaves, especially in the Far East. My 12-year old daughter asked me for a new pair of trainers. I told her she was old enough to go out and make her own'. Included here are all ten series of Jeremy Hardy Speaks to the Nation, with episodes are on topics like 'How to stay alive as long as you possibly can', 'How to have a baby', and 'How To Confront The Vexed Issue Of British Identity Without Getting In The Most Fearful Bate About The Whole Thing'. This bumper collection also includes Jeremy Hardy's New Year Cavalcade - an unmissable meditation on everything Yule and a healthy dose of comic Bisodol to flush away the memory of driving up the motorway for seven hours in the dark to spend quantity time with your family - and the memorial programme When Jeremy Hardy Spoke to the Nation. Not quite a biography, not quite a documentary, this final programme is narrated by his great friend and colleague Sandi Toksvig, and shines a light on how and why the man once described as 'an incendiary vicar' stayed so funny and so beloved for over 30 years. Produced and directed by David Tyler. A Pozzitive production for BBC Radio 4. ©2020 BBC Studios Distribution Ltd (p)2020 BBC Studios Distribution Ltd

Jeremy Hardy Feels It: The BBC Radio 4 comedy Audiobook

Jeremy Hardy Feels It: The BBC Radio 4 comedy

Author: Jeremy Hardy Narrator: Jeremy Hardy Release Date: February 2018

Jeremy Hardy returns with a brand new series that not only seconds that emotion but explains it too. Yes, BBC Radio 4's most passionate polemicist returns to the airwaves with a new format which promises to be both personal and profound, and to present sides of Jeremy you won't have heard before. He may even sing. (He won't sing.) The News Quiz and I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue regular, proud progenitor of ten series of Jeremy Hardy Speaks To The Nation, and winner of numerous awards and almost certainly the Nobel Prize for Chemistry, Jeremy is famous for lines like: "Kids should never be fashion slaves, especially in the Far East. My 12-year old daughter asked me for a new pair of trainers. I told her she was old enough to go out and make her own." and - "Islam is no weirder than Christianity. Both are just Judaism with the jokes taken out." His unique world view once lead him to be likened to "an incendiary vicar". Gillian Reynolds called him, "an idealist, a dissenter, a polemicist and moralist - he's a salutary reminder that jokes can, and should, be about big things." The show is produced by Jeremy's long-standing accomplice, David Tyler, whose radio credits include Cabin Pressure, John Finnemore's Double Acts, Thanks A Lot, Milton Jones!, Marcus Brigstocke's The Brig Society, Kevin Eldon Will See You Now, Armando Iannucci's Charm Offensive, Giles Wemmbley Hogg Goes Off, The Castle, The 99p Challenge, Deep Trouble, My First Planet, Radio Active and Bigipedia. His TV credits include Paul Merton - The Series, Spitting Image, Absolutely, The Paul Calf Video Diary, Coogan's Run and exec producing Victoria Wood's Dinnerladies. In the four shows, Jeremy is feeling - in turn - happy, sad, fearful and finally, hopeful!

My Family and Other Strangers: Adventures in Family History Audiobook

My Family and Other Strangers: Adventures in Family History

Author: Jeremy Hardy Narrator: Jeremy Hardy, Jeremy Hardy Release Date: March 2010

Exploring family history is an urge that has gripped the nation, and it has gripped Jeremy Hardy too. In My Family and Other Strangers he sets out on the road and on the world wide web to find out all he can about the Hardy clan. His aim is to prove - or more likely disprove - his grandmother Becky's dubious claims that they are descended from Sir Christopher Wren and that Jeremy's great grandfather was personal bodyguard and confident to the King. Wild stories apart, Jeremy travels as far a field as his local library and the hostile waters around Malta in order to find family traits that go beyond a big nose and IBS.Whatever he finds, how will he know how much is in the blood and how much is coincidence? Might he discover a comedy gene? But perhaps what he will find is more important is to build up a picture of those relatives he knew too fleetingly as a small child, and the people who filled their world. Negotiating the living and the dead, the familiar and the distant, in My Family and Other Strangers Jeremy Hardy takes us on a fascinating and often hilarious journey into the world of family ancestry.
