Archive On 4: Rik Mayall, Panglobal Phenomenon, is a 60-minute programme assembled from 114 hours of recordings that the late comic made between 2004 and his passing, in conversation and improvising with his collaborator Max Kinnings.

Most of the audio is taken from a two year period when the pair were writing Mayall's 2005 spoof autobiography, Bigger Than Hitler Better Than Christ. But the recordings continued up until a few weeks before Mayall died, aged 56 of a heart attack.
