6.30pm

Country Life Every Week - - Opinion -

I main­tain that the sta­tion’s holy of holies is the 6.30pm com­edy slot. For this, I ac­tu­ally dis­mount from the trac­tor—i once re­versed into the barn wall be­cause I was laugh­ing so hard at Just a Minute. No one, but no one, does com­edy bet­ter than Ra­dio 4. As ul­ti­mate proof, M’lud, I of­fer spoof panel show I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue. Jack Dee’s dou­ble en­tren­dres about fic­tional nympho­ma­niac score-girl Sa­man­tha are, mostly, too po­lit­i­cally in­cor­rect to men­tion: ‘Sa­man­tha tells me it’s time to let her whip­pet out.’ And what else but Cabin Pres­sure, the sit­com about the very bud­get air­line MJN Air, could get the en­tire fam­ily round a ta­ble cry­ing with laugh­ter.
