ISIHAC (I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue)


Last Edited: 08-Mar-200501-May-2008 A Global British Comedy Collaborative document.

Edited by John Lucas and Bryn Meek


Identifying episodes of ISIHAC is harder than for many programmes. In addition to regular series broadcasts, there are broadcast compilations and cassette compilations. Although the cassettes often have Humph’s introductions to a particular city, a cassette side may well have segments from several shows in different cities and have even combine show segments within a single “track.” Even the introductions are often spliced from two separate shows in the same city.

As a result, this listing goes into much greater detail to facilitate comparing episodes from other collections. Locations, first segments, cast members, producers, and internal references to seasons, positions within series and other clues can help to identify an episode.

Eventually, all compilation and cassette segments will have pointers to the presumed source segments, where known. Cassette 1-1 probably compiles segments from the 1980’s, for which we do not have broadcast shows. The cassettes are located within the chronological sequence following the presumed primary source episodes of each and are flagged in “aqua” highlight.

Aqua is also used to denote series first and last episode remarks for dating and for data in question.


Sincere thanks are due Mark McKay and Kevin Hale for detailed information and corrections.
