What catchphrases were in Beyond Our Ken? I remember "The answer lies in the soil".
"Well, I think the answer lies in the soil" is from Beyond our Ken, for sure.
The only others I can think of are both from Kenneth Williams.
He imported "Ere, stop messin' about" to Beyond our Ken from Hancock, and he also played the character of an old bloke who, for dramatic and comedic purposes, had a different occupation every week and when asked how long he'd been doing the job would almost invariably reply "Thirty-five years".
I say almost invariably because, occasionally, just to catch the audience out, he'd come up with a significantly different period of time - which always got a huge laugh.
