Alan Bennett's On The Margin

On the Margin was a six part BBC 2 TV British satirical comedy sketch show written and performed by Alan Bennett and a regular cast including John Sergeant. Produced by Sydney Lotterby of Yes Minister and Porridge fame, each instalment featured a mixture of sketches (some foreshadowing Bennett's subsequent television dramas, others mocking television cliches, such as documentaries about working-class Northern writers and discussion programmes featuring pretentious critics). This CD is a never before broadcast compilation of sketches and extracts from the TV series before the tapes were wiped.
