Mornington Crescent is a game whose rules and history are shrouded in myth and mystery. Now, in this extended version of a spoof documentary first aired on BBC Radio 4, the research team from I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue
shine a light in the dark. As if that wasn't enough, Humphrey Lyttelton, Graeme Garden, Tim Brooke-Taylor, and Barry Cryer also provide readings from two learned books on the subject: The Little Book of Mornington Crescent
and Stovold's Mornington Crescent Almanac
. From Roman times to Chaucer and beyond, Mornington Crescent has become a legend in its own tube stop. Now, at last, its true history can be told.
