John Finnemore’s Souvenir Programme: Series 9: The BBC Radio 4 comedy sketch show Audiobook

John Finnemore’s Souvenir Programme: Series 9: The BBC Radio 4 comedy sketch show

The complete ninth series of BBC Radio 4's award-winning sketch show 'One of our best sketch writers' Observer John Finnemore returns with his multi-award-winning sketch show, but this series is very different to the previous eight. There are still sketches and songs, and it's still written and performed by him and his usual fantastic ensemble cast - but with no live studio audience, John has taken the opportunity to try something new. Each episode in this series of Souvenir Programme consists of scenes from one person's life, played in reverse order. There's no narrative as such - it's still a sketch show - but as we follow the characters back in time, from lockdown Zoom calls to childhood birthdays and funerals, the individual sketches link up to form an overall picture, portraying the sprawling history of an entire multi-generational family. And, as if that wasn't enough, there are also some terrific tall tales, a paean of praise, and a truly unforgettable earworm... Clever, complex, hilarious and poignant, these Souvenir Programmes with a twist star Lawry Lewin as Russ, Margaret Cabourn-Smith as Deborah, Simon Kane as Jerry, Carrie Quinlan as Vanessa and John Finnemore as Newt. Cast and credits Written and performed by John Finnemore Ensemble cast: Margaret Cabourn-Smith, Simon Kane, Lawry Lewin, Carrie Quinlan Original music composed by Susannah Pearse and Sally Stares, and arranged by Susannah Pearse and Tim Sutton Recorded and edited by Rich Evans at Syncbox Post Production coordinator: Beverly Tagg Producer: Ed Morrish A BBC Studios production © 2021 BBC Studios Distribution Ltd (p) 2021 BBC Studios Distribution Ltd

And if you don't like any of the acts, well... another will be along in about 55 seconds. Presiding over this comedy maelstrom is John Humphrys (the fierce one from the Today programme), who sits at the side of the stage with a stopwatch, ready to cut the microphone when the time is up. So hurry up and get ready for the fastest show on air, delivered with a frenetic urgency that makes for a truly unique experience.

Cabin Pressure: The Complete Series 4

Author: John Finnemore Narrator: , Benedict Cumberbatch, John Finnemore, Roger Allam, Stephanie Cole Release Date: February 2013

Cabin Pressure is set in the wing and a prayer world of a tiny, one-plane charter airline; staffed by two pilots, one on his way down, and one who was never up to start with. Whether it's dealing with a stuffed sheep, an angry princess or a rogue fruit tray, no job is too small, but many, many jobs are too difficult. Carolyn Knapp-Shappey, MJN Air's formidable boss, has employed two of the very cheapest pilots money can buy: Captain Martin Crieff, who's always wanted to fly and won't let a little thing like lack of ability stop him, and First Officer Douglas Richardson, smooth-voiced old sky god and eternal schemer. Passenger service is provided by the relentlessly cheery Arthur, proud inventor of both Surprising Rice and his own hat. Written by John Finnemore (John Finnemore's Souvenir Programme, The Now Show), Cabin Pressure stars Stephanie Cole as Carolyn, Benedict Cumberbatch as Martin, Roger Allam as Douglas and John Finnemore as Arthur. 'The more I listen to John Finnemore's Cabin Pressure, the more I think what a stonking masterpiece it is. Perfect in every department.' - Philip Pullman 'Unexpectedly brilliant' - Time Out 'An inspired new sitcom' - Observer
