Some of our Pilots are Missing

Radio 4
1999 (four programmes)

A show purporting to consist of clips from a stock of previously-unheard pilot tapes discovered during renovations at Broadcasting House.  Spectacles such as Robin Day's Funny Phone Calls, Badgerwatch with Murray Walker and Jack de Manio Goes Latin were, of course, complete fabrications, voiced by the impressionist Rory Bremner and scripted by his long-term collaborator John Langdon.  The pieces were introduced by John Waite (of Radio 4's Face The Facts, and latterly You and Yours) in a Brian Perkins-style display of deadpan delivery.
