My Word! was a long-running radio panel game broadcast by the BBC on the Home Service (1956–67) and Radio 4 (1967–88). It
was created by Edward J. Mason and Tony Shryane, and featured comic writers Denis Norden and Frank Muir, famous in Britain for the series Take It From Here.
The show was piloted in June 1956 on the Midland Home Service and first broadcast as a series on the BBC Home Service on 1 January 1957. The series also ran
on BBC Television for one series from July-September 1960. For decades it was also broadcast worldwide via BBC World Service shortwave. In the United States,
the show was syndicated on the WFMT Fine Arts Network until 1 October 2013, when BBC ended US distribution. Australia's Radio National had also been airing
reruns for years but discontinued them in July 2014.
