I just discovered the site, what a fantastic resource. Now - many years ago I heard a MP skit on the radio, have checked the lists of skits to no avail, and don't ever recall seeing it on TV. It was phone-in where Cleese was the moderator and was seeking calls about the Common Agricultural Policy or similar, phones blasting, everything very urgent. He tries getting rid of a nerdish caller who is actually trying to answer the question in agonisingly slow and detailed fashion. Don't know why but it did a job on me at the time. Any clues/leads gratefully accepted.

That sounds like "The Phone-In" from Matching Tie and Handkerchief album
which you can buy on 8-track, LP, or even audiocassette in these modern times.

"The Phone-In" was not part of the regular television series or films.

Many thanks from the now not so lost soul - I will certainly check out Matching Tie.
