It's That Man Again

ITMA was a 1940s BBC radio comedy programme. ITMA stood for "It's That Man Again", which originally referred to Adolf Hitler but later to Tommy Handley, a popular comedian. Other contributors included Ted Kavanaugh, a master of voices, and Hattie Jacques, who played a greedy girl, Sophie Tuckshop. This programme featured dozens of characters, such as Mrs. Mopp, and Colonel Chinstrap (played by Jack Train). (Some years later, Train reprised the role of Colonel Chinstrap for a couple of guest appearances on The Goon Show).

ITMA ran for over 300 episodes. When Handley died the show was cancelled because he was considered irreplaceable as its star.
