Weren't there two quite different series of this?
My recollection is that the line-up may have changed slightly from show to show (with Hugh Laurie & Emma Thompson being the regulars, plus one guest per episode), but the basic format didn't change. It was pretty much a mixed bag of various pastiche/parody sketches of typical Radio 4 output, interspersed with snippetes of songs/tunes ("And as the sound of 'Popcorn' by Hot Butter fades away..."). The skits sending-up R4 afternoon plays and consumer programmes were particularly good.
I have seen available on CD a couple of times, but (like quite a lot of BBC Radio Comedy) rather over-priced - something like £20 for 2 series.
