I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue, sometimes abbreviated to ISIHAC or simply Clue, is a BBC radio comedy panel game that has been broadcast since 11 April 1972. Since then, the programme has been produced at the rate of one or two series each year, being transmitted on BBC Radio 4, with occasional repeats on BBC Radio 7 and the BBC's World Service. The format, introduced as "the antidote to panel games", consists of four comedians, split into two teams and "given silly things to do" by a chairman. Bar a period of split chairmanship in the first series,[1] Humphrey Lyttelton ("Humph") served in this role from the programme's inception until his death in 2008.[2]

The show was conceived in 1972 as a parody of the then-ubiquitous radio and TV panel games; it includes elements that satirise them. The 50th series was broadcast in November and December 2007 on BBC Radio 4.[3] In April 2008, following the hospitalisation and subsequent death of Lyttelton, recording of the 51st series was postponed.[4] The show recommenced on 15 June 2009[5] with Lyttelton being replaced by a trio of hosts: Stephen Fry, Jack Dee and Rob Brydon.[6] Dee went on to host all episodes of the 52nd series later that year.[7] He continues in the role for the 2010–2011 series.
