    Crabby, crusty, and curmudgeonly he may be, but Victor Meldrew, played brilliantly by Richard Wilson, voices the exasperation of the once silent majority. Accompanied by his long-suffering wife Margaret (Annette Crosbie), Victor's howlingly funny battles against what he perceives as modern-day ills have turned him into one of the great comic creations of our time. These four scripts were adapted for radio by One Foot in the Grave creator David Renwick and re-recorded by the cast.

    Often imitated but never bettered, I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue is the only authentic antidote to panel games. This collection finds unflappable chairman Humphrey Lyttelton giving silly things to do to regular panelists Tim Brooke-Taylor, Barry Cryer and Graeme Garden, as well as special guests Stephen Fry and Rob Brydon. Highlights include old favourites such as One Song to the Tune of Another, 84 Chicken Cross Road, Sound Charades, New Definitions and of course the brilliantly baffling, fiendishly funny Mornington Crescent.

    This is a dynamic, modern dramatisation of a classic book by John Wyndham. Bill Nighy (Love Actually and many other films) and Sarah Parish (Cutting It) play Richard and Janet, a couple caught up in the goings-on of a sleepy English village in which all the children have golden eyes, blond hair, and a sinister talent for telepathy and telekinesis. (Wyndham's novel was filmed as Village of the Damned in 1960 and 1995.)

    Walking disaster area he may be, but the nation's favourite grumpy old man is in formidable form as he takes on the neighbours with a pile of radioactive horse manure, suffers a traumatic reunion with his long-lost brother, and reflects on life, wood lice, and everything as he awaits the call of jury service. The tetchy ogre of suburbia roars again and bites back in three classic television episodes written by David Renwick.

    Here are four of the best episodes of the comedy news show, including appearances by the late Linda Smith, as well as Simon Hoggart's final edition as chairman. Since 1977, BBC Radio 4's funniest and quirkiest game show has been answering questions and offering wit and wisdom on global happenings, national news, and, quite frankly, pathetic parochial events. Now you can enjoy the highlights of last year's news, distilled by the very best and wittiest panellists.

    Genius is the comedy series, broadcast on Radio 4, that sees Dave Gorman and a celebrity guest chew over ridiculous, unworkable but sometimes "genius" inventions from the public. Genius invites listeners to air those incredible concepts that strike after one-too-many drinks at the pub: not necessarily ideas that are worthy, or even very well thought through, but have a hint of genius.

    Nothing escaped the satirical eye of Britain's phenomenally successful, all-Asian sketch comedy show. So get your taste buds ready for the blandest dish on the menu in "Going for an English", prepare to let your heart pound at the Indian recreation of "Brief Encounter", and sing along to profound words of wisdom with "Fifty Ways to Leave Your Mother". Hilarious, irreverent, and barrier-breaking.

    This six-part comedy series was first broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in 1988. Hosted by Stephen Fry, accompanied each week by Hugh Laurie, Jim Broadbent, Emma Thompson, and a selection of guests including Phyllida Law, Robert Bathurst, Julia Hills, and Alison Steadman, the show takes the form of a roundtable discussion, interspersed with sketches that veer tangentially from the sublime to the ridiculous.
