Barry Took presents a fabulosa history of the BBC comedy series starring Kenneth Horne, Betty Marsden, Hugh Paddick, Bill Pertwee and Kenneth Williams.From 1965 to 1968, 'Round the Horne' boldly went where no programme had previously dared, bringing a frenetic mix of wit, satire, parody and downright innuendo to the BBC airwaves. From its roots as a successor to 'Beyond Our Ken' it became an institution, earning a place in the hearts of listeners worldwide and in the annals of radio comedy.In this special programme, Barry Took, who co-scripted every episode, takes an insider's look back at 'Round the Horne's' evolution. With the help of archive excerpts he reveals how each series was made, from the script writing process through to the heady atmosphere of rehearsal and recording. Along the way he also fondly remembers the colourful personalities of all those involved.
