Down Your Ear
Radio 4
Christmas special (30 minutes) 1992
Five-part series (15 minutes each) 1993

A programme showcasing On The Hour producer Armando Iannucci’s prodigious ability for fiddling about with bits of tape.  Armed only with a huge library of stock recordings and some splicing equipment, Iannucci explained (via ludicrously mannered commentary) the history and future of radio and much else besides, highlighting such audio gems as a single footballer playing a league match on his own and a live commentary on the Splitting of the Radio 4 Frequencies.
