Publisher's Summary

The Museum of Curiosity is BBC Radio 4's monumental comedy edifice, and the only one with gargoyles in the foyer. It allows nothing inside that doesn't make you scratch your head, stroke your chin or, at the very least, go 'hmm'. Fortunately, helping to fill its vacant plinths is a gathering of the world's most original minds.
Among the guests bearing donations to the museum in these 25 episodes are Neil Gaiman, Sarah Millican, Clive James, Kate Adie, Sir Terry Pratchett, Ronni Ancona, Jon Ronson, Bettany Hughes, Ben Elton, Francesca Stavrakopoulou, Alain de Botton, Charlotte Uhlenbroek, Alistair Fothergill, Ruth Padel, Jonathan Miller, Lucie Green, Marcus du Sautoy, Sara Wheeler, Brian Eno, Shappi Khorsandi, John Hodgman, Chris Addison, Roger Law, Tim Minchin, Philip Pullman, Richard Wiseman, Victoria Finlay, Simon Singh, Jimmy Carr, Graham Linehan, Sarah Bakewell, Robin Ince, David Eagleman, Natalie Haynes, Brian Blessed, Alan Davies, Gareth Edwards, Martha Reeves, Harry Enfield, Helen Scales, Admiral Alan West and many more.
In addition to all the episodes from the first four series, a previously unbroadcast pilot episode, The Professor of Curiosity, is also included. Running time: 12 hours approx.

Not complete

Each track ends approximately 6 minuets into a 30 minuet program and then moves to the next program automatically.

A disappointing collection

normally I'm a huge fan of the QI team and the radio version of this is superb, however I can't recommend this version. Episodes just cut off in mid stream and without warning. After speaking to Audible tech support it appears to be a problem with the recording of this item. so I heartily recommend you don't buy this item until they fix this problem or you won't get a whole episode in the collection.

Episodes are cut short

The next episode starts before the previous episode has finished! Takes the shine off a very enjoyable series.

Oh, the British!!!

I loved this. Except for the fact that each chapter seems to finish half way through the actual episode. Poor Bill Bailey is half way through a sentence and it cuts to the next chapter, the start of the next episode.
I need the knowledge Bill was going to impart!

First two episodes cut short

Great show but the first two episodes are missing the last few minutes, if this was fixed it would be excellent
