It's That Man Again

Redirected from ITMA

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.
