Radio Times review

"How many Beatles are there?" cries Mitch Benn, as if at the end of his tether. Loads, actually, if you're a sucker for tenuous links. Declaring himself number 37, Benn spends a cheeky, musical half-hour running through the other characters on his list, taking swipes at obvious targets like Ringo Starr ("he invented Mark Owen") and Yoko Ono ("the anti-Beatle").

He saves one of his smartest barbs, however, for Jeff Lynne, accusing the ELO frontman of producing the kind of records in the 1970s that he, Lynne, wished the Fab Four were still making. Ouch! When Benn finally explains his right to be on the roll call, the humour slackens a little, but it's great fun getting there.
