Chris Morris News!

Chris Morris's "ON THE HOUR" double CD Boxset is to be released on Warp records - 24th November 2008

After a sixteen year wait, one of the most highly acclaimed radio programmes of the nineties, featuring a uniquely talented combination of acclaimed comedy writers and actors, is finally released on Warp Records.

As well as featuring the first appearance of Steve Coogan as Alan Partridge, this hilarious satirical comedy (originally broadcast on BBC Radio 4) formed the basis for TV show ‘The Day Today’ and was described by the Independent on Sunday as “the most brilliant radio comedy to emerge in the last ten years or more” for it’s savage dissection of news and current affairs programming.

Each box set will feature one full series (six half hour episodes). In addition an hour of bonus material will be spread between the two box sets, including the pilot episode and previously unheard Alan Partridge improvisation.

I've blogged this before but this is one of the best clips I can remember from it...
