Privates is the first miniseries of It's All Been Done Radio Hour. It is a spoof of noir detective stories, with rapid-fire puns, double entendre, and other word play. It premiered in September 2018 and ran through April 2019.

Installments air in mostly continuous months and make up one complete story, told in chapters. It's running time is between five and ten minutes per segment, longer than a typical Radio Hour commercial, but shorter than a normal segment.

The lead character is Jake Cotton, and his mission is to find the missing leopard of his ex-girlfriend, Dame Judy Bench.
