John Finnemore’s Souvenir Programme was described by The Radio Times as “the best sketch show in years, on television or radio”, and by The Daily Telegraph as “funny enough to make even the surliest cat laugh”. Already the winner of a BBC Audio Drama Award and a Radio Academy Silver Award, John was named the 2016 Radio Broadcaster of the Year by the Broadcasting Press Guild for his work on Souvenir Programme. 6/6 In this final edition of the sixth series of Souvenir Programme, John lets Lawry take over, with inevitable reactions from Carrie, Margaret and Simon.
