Before Whose Line is it Anyway? became a massive success on Channel 4, it started as a series on BBC Radio 4. This series contained many of the same games that appeared in the television version, such as 'Authors', 'Every Other Line' and 'Rap'.

Clive Anderson was the host (as ever), with John Sessions and Stephen Fry acting as regular players.
