Beyond Our Ken: The Collected Series 5-7: The BBC Radio classic comedy series Audiobook

Beyond Our Ken: The Collected Series 5-7: The BBC Radio classic comedy series

The complete Series 5-7 of the legendary BBC radio comedy One of the funniest and most popular series on radio between 1958 and 1964, Beyond Our Ken delighted audiences nationwide throughout its seven series and 123 episodes. Packed with sketches, songs, catchphrases and innuendo, it mixes silliness, satire and sophistication to superb effect, and continues to make us laugh today. Kenneth Horne - 'who prefers to remain anonymous' - is our unflappable host in these 46 episodes, presiding over an array of fabulous characters such as camp duo Charles and Rodney, celebrity chef Fanny Haddock and countryman Arthur Fallowfield (for whom the answer always lies in the soil, regardless of the question). Regular documentary spoof 'Hornerama' returns, with a look at topics including the arts, the countryside, travel and television; and Kenneth Horne's weeks become increasingly extraordinary and eventful. Plus, the team tackle the Siege of Troy, present a new interpretation of 'Horne In Wonderland' (or 'Beyond Our Looking Glass'), offer their take on Caesar and Cleopatra's story and revel in a Regency romp through Beau Brummel's Brighton. Accompanying them for some musical interludes are Jill Day, Edwin Braden, the Fraser Hayes Four, Eileen Gourlay and the BBC Variety Orchestra. Written by Eric Merriman, these wonderful, whimsical shows star Kenneth Horne, Kenneth Williams, Hugh Paddick, Betty Marsden and Bill Pertwee. Episode guide First broadcast on BBC Light Programme on the following dates: Series 5 - 12 October 1961-22 February 1962 Series 6 - 27 December 1962-21 March 1963 Series 7 - 24 November 1963-16 February 1964 These episodes have been restored to their fullest versions using both Home (BBC Light Programme) and Overseas (BBC Transcription Service) recordings.

Tony's: The Complete Series 1-2: A BBC comedy Audiobook

Tony's: The Complete Series 1-2: A BBC comedy

Victor Spinetti stars in this BBC radio sitcom about the hilarious misadventures of a corner-shop barber North London barber's shop Tony's might not be the trendiest salon in town, but it's definitely the cheapest and the cheeriest. Run by exuberant Italian Tony Fucetti, it's the place to go if you want a bargain cut and blow-dry from apprentice Maisie, or a short back and sides courtesy of Scottish hairdresser Hector (just watch out for his razor...) These 12 episodes follow the highs and lows of Tony and his team, as they prepare to beat Boris the Russian in a hair-styling showdown, give the corner shop a makeover, take on new stylist Stanley, and try and avoid the attentions of the taxman. Plus, Tony's Mama decides to find him a girlfriend, a hairdresser exchange programme leads to publicity - and disaster, a contretemps over a customer's bright green barnet leads to a court appearance, and a day out at the seaside doesn't go quite as planned... Please note: This is a vintage recording. The audio quality may not be up to modern day standards. Content Warning: The humour of the programme reflects the era in which it was broadcast and therefore may not reflect current views. Created by award-winning dramatist Jim Eldridge (Parsley Sidings, Albert & Me), this classic barbershop sitcom is a cut above the rest. Comedy veteran Victor Spinetti stars as Tony, with John Laurie (Dad's Army) as Hector. Deborah Watling (Doctor Who) as Maisie and Deryck Guyler (The Men from the Ministry) as Stanley. Among the guest stars are Carry On... actor Kenneth Connor and 'Allo 'Allo's Gordon Kaye. Production credits Written by Jim Eldridge Produced by John Fawcett Wilson Incidental music by Max Harris First broadcast BBC Radio 2, 21 October-25 November 1979 (Series 1), 18 January-22 February 1981 (Series 2) Cast Tony - Victor Spinetti Hector - John Laurie Maisie - Deborah Watling Mama - Norma Ronald Carlo - Anthony Morton Stanley - Deryck Guyler With Bill Pertwee, Joanna Wake, David Tate, Royce Mills, David Ryall, Jerald Wells, Deirdre Costello, Henry McGee, Roland MacLeod, John Blythe, Kenneth Connor, Josephine Tewson, Stephen Greif, Alan Lake, Gordon Kaye, Jeffrey Segal, Bill Wallis, Jan Hunt, Frank Coda, Dilys Laye.
