Went to the recording last night at the Drill Hall - fantastic. If you haven't done this already I would recommend it to you - the tickets are free and it is a great night out. The recording lasted for an hour and a half - how they are going to get 30 minutes of material that isn't libellous I'll never know!
I am consumed with jealousy! How fantastic for you, though. Having recently returned to the US of A, I only get to listen to Sandy Toksvig's good humour through podcasts and online radio. Americans are many, many things, but we are not a witty lot.
DeadGoodBooks: how did you get hold of tickets? It sounds like an awesome night out :-)
LizT, try http://www.bbc.co.uk/tickets. There they list the shows they currently have tickets for, plus it is possible to sign up to a mailing list.
This will only cover recordings of shows actually made by the BBC, which means this isn't the route for tickets for the ever wonderful I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue. Producer (and mystery voice) Jon Naismith runs a mailing list for that. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. This does charge as much as £15 a ticket, which I'm sure would be money well spent - I've never been to one.
I went to the recording of the Chain Reaction conversation between Richard Wilson and Arabella Weir in January which, I think, is broadcast next week.
Tomorrow I shall be at the recording of the first programme in a new series of The Now Show, which I'm looking forward to a lot.
Grammath, thanks! I will keep an eye out on that one. And ISIHAC too :-) Hurrah for Radio 4!
