John Finnemore’s Souvenir Programme Series 9 (Audiobook)
BBC Radio 4's award-winning sketch show.
'One of our best sketch writers' – Observer
John Finnemore returns with his multi-award-winning sketch show, but this series is very different to the previous eight.
There are still sketches and songs, and it's still written and performed by him and his usual fantastic ensemble cast – but with no live studio audience, John has taken the opportunity to try something new. Each episode consists of scenes from one person's life, played in reverse order.
As we follow the characters back in time, from lockdown Zoom calls to childhood birthdays and funerals, the individual sketches link up to form an overall picture, portraying the sprawling history of an entire multi-generational family.
