Following the positive response to classic sketch group Absolutely's guest appearance on Radio 4's Sketchorama, BBC Radio 4 commissioned this full half hour show featuring further, unheard material from the recording held in April 2013 at the Oran Mor venue in Glasgow.

The much-loved sketch group - consisting of Pete Baikie, Morwenna Banks, Moray Hunter, Gordon Kennedy and John Sparkes - recorded almost 45 minutes of material, so the full half-hour show will allow radio listeners a chance to hear even more new sketches from other Absolutely characters, such as Frank Hovis and The Old Lady Artist and even more from Stoneybridge and Calum Gilhooley.
