Hello everyone. During a recent hard drive crash I've managed to lose some Martin Jarvis Just William stories. Does anyone have Just William Pursuing Happiness (2020) and Just William The Great Performer (2021) please? Thanks.

Lady Killers by Lucy Worsley:


Sat 14th May 2022 02:09

Could I please request the R4 series Lady Killers (10 episodes) by Lucy Worsley.

For some reason it seems to be geo-blocked. getIplayer won't download it, and according to Sounds, it is not available in my location.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks to Warren for the original odd half hour files and a big thanks to HarrySpeakup for solving the download issues some of us were having (plus that gofile is a useful site!)

Simiar to oldsoldier, I'm a member of sendspace, so maybe thats an affecting issue.

For short term fix, here is s1 uploaded to another site:

I downloaded the files using Edge, Chrome and Firefox with no problem. I'm in the US. I'm a sendspace member and downloaded while I was signed in.

I signed out and tried to download the files. Folder shows up fine. When you click on a file download link then adware/malware links show up asking you to press accept and go to adwarezone.com and other places. I got 4 different messages the 4 times I tried to download an individual file. My security programs jumped up and killed them all. Sendspace has gotten really bad with such links for non-members the last 2 years.

I'm in the UK (PlusNet) and I've tried with Firefox (with and without a VPN), Chrome and Opera browsers. I also tried with Firefox on my Android phone and everytime I click on the download option I get the maintenance page after the second page. I've never had this problem with any other file host!


Thu 12th May 2022 19:25

Great find on the season 1 of odd half hour but I've found the same thing. I'm in UK but I've tried from behind vpn as wll but just keep getting that sendspace maintenance message. Any suggestions?


Thu 12th May 2022 17:20

LarryD, those sendspace links are working fine from here (UK, Virgin broadband). Have you got a VPN option in yor browser to try to access via a different address?


Thu 12th May 2022 16:32


I've been trying to download series 1 of the Odd Half Hour from your link since 7:30pm last night from SendSpace and keep getting a scheduled maintenance page with a Tetris game. I also get it with my links for Series 2 and 3 so I don't know how long SendSpace are running their maintenance. Any chance you could upload them somewhere else (in one file if poss)?

Many thanks Warren for the "missing" Odd Half Hour series.

Isn't this Messageboard amazing? Only 30 hours ago I had never heard of this show and now I have the complete set! My thanks to all who chipped in with files and info.

P.S. For anyone who fancies some more Justin Edwards sketch comedy, I would recommend The Consultants

The "1st" series (2008) of The Odd Half Hour can be found listed on the BCC, hidden under Happy Mondays:

@ HarrySpeakup & Ned in Boots
Thanks for your respective responses. Much appreciated


Tue 10th May 2022 19:13


it's odd (no pun intended) that the BBC listing at https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00w6dsm/episodes/guide only shows two series. There are correct in the listings as the first episode of Series 2, which is the only one available on the iPlayer at the moment, is the same as the first episode of Series 2 that I posted. https://www.comedy.co.uk/radio/the_odd_half_hour/episodes/ shows all three series.


Tue 10th May 2022 17:24

duke, Larry D

I see the BBC's episode listing for The Odd Half Hour lists only Series 1 and 2. I am told that these are actually Series 2 and Series 3, and that the original Series 1 is never mentioned in BBC's listings.

If anyone can share the original Series 1 it will be welcomed by more than a few.


Mon 9th May 2022 20:34

Big thanks to LarryD for seasons 2&3 of the odd half hour. If anyone out there has season 1 you know what to do :) TIA


Mon 9th May 2022 20:04

Hi duke,

I thought I had all three series, but I couldn't find series 1. Here's series 2 and 3 though.

Series 2

Series 3

Hi, one that seems to have passed me by. Does anyone have seasons 1 and 2 of 'The Odd Half Hour'. Heard one ep last night on r4x and thought it was very funny. Don't know how I missed this one. TIA.

Many thanks for your help; much appreciated.

Poppy, here is David Tennant's Macbeth (both parts):
(Do you have the Arkangel Shakespeare collection, David Tennant appears in a number of those productions)


Sat 7th May 2022 19:27

BBC Sounds is not providing part one of the recent David Tennant 'Hamlet'. There seems to be some kind of glitch.; pressing 'play' for P1 produces P2.

This is not comedy, I know, but if anyone can provide part one I should be v grateful.

Does any kind person have "Wogan: In His Own Words" please? It was broadcast on Radio 2 on 3rd April, but I've only just spotted it in the schedules, and the programme's no longer available.

Many thanks Ned In Boots!
I had not heard of this podcast, I was looking for the BBC Radio 4 Extra series broadcast in 2018. That ran for just three episodes whereas this podcast has 33. I guess it's the same show (but much more) so I'm very glad of your response.

Sat 30th Apr 2022 08:39

Golux, is this the show you mean?


Sat 30th Apr 2022 08:13

Could anybody share episodes 2 & 3 of Steve Penk's Radio Nightmares please?

Does anyone have a copy of Train on Platform 4 ? Really enjoyed it on broadcast


Mon 18th Apr 2022 16:02

I listened to the ISIHAC 50th Anniversary celebration this morning. As it was part of Archive On 4 rather than a special episode of ISIHAC itself I was hoping for more interviews, but then I guess that's tricky with almost all of the panel now dead.
