A global collaboration of general and specialist collectors of British Comedy. The documents at this site are a "collection of collections" and represent the status of the work in progress -- merging great collections to create and distribute the best and most complete versions of each surviving episode of each show. A show at "Rev. B" or higher has been compiled, reviewed and revised before achieving "final" status. Later receipt of additional material or better versions of existing material cause releases of further versions.
(We focus primarily on British radio comedy past and present, but we also include non-British comedy as well as drama and readings and nonfiction. Some material from television, stage and screen may also be included.)
None of these pages contain any performance content for downloading.
