Kenneth Horne, Kenneth Williams, Hugh Paddick, Betty Marsden and others star in 14 episodes of the madcap forerunner to Round The Horne.

Published for the very first time, these uproarious half hours were first broadcast on the BBC Light Programme in 1960. A hectic mix of sketches and songs, it's full of witty wordplay, larger-than-life characters, comic catchphrases and sublimely silly humour. The scripts are written by Eric Merriman, and musical accompaniment is provided by Patricia Lancaster, the Fraser Hayes Four, the Hornets, Edwin Braden and the BBC Revue Orchestra.

First released: Thursday 5th January 2017
