Something to Shout About: Series 1-3: A BBC Radio Comedy: A BBC Radio Comedy

The complete Series 1-3 of the 1960s comedy set in the world of advertising Set in a London ad agency called 'Apsley, Addis, Cohen, Barbican, Blythe, Giddy & Partners’, Something To Shout About ran to 54 episodes over three series in 1960-61. Michael Medwin stars as account executive Michael, with Fenella Fielding as his seductive secretary Janet, Joan Sims and Sheila Hancock as shorthand typists Mavis and Shirley, Eleanor Summerfield as no-frills executive Maggie and Nicholas Phipps as copywriter Adrian. This disparate team must stick together to succeed, as they battle to win new accounts and impress clients – and from wooing a US tycoon to putting a glamorous spin on a dreary seaside holiday camp, they always think big. Why else would they hire an elephant to promote bath salts? In these three series, a new recruit unsettles the ad agency’s routine, there’s uproar in the agency when the women discover that the men get paid more, a Parisian photoshoot is ruined and has to be redone on a budget, and a team trip to the countryside to work on a shampoo commercial doesn’t go to plan... Written by Myles Rudge and guest starring Warren Mitchell and Roy Dotrice in a variety of roles, this light-hearted look at the advertising world is a treat for lovers of classic radio comedy. Written by Myles Rudge and Ronnie Wolfe Produced by John Simmonds, Trafford Whitelock and Eric Miller Music by The Jingle Belles and The Bernie Fenton Quartet, under the direction of Cliff Adams (Series 1)s

Kenneth Williams' Stop Messing About (Classic BBC Radio Comedy)

Author: Myles Rudge Narrator: Hugh Paddick, Joan Sims, Kenneth Williams Release Date: November 2010

'Stop Messing About - the first all-nude radio show. Nervous listeners are advised to keep their eyes closed... and it's forbidden to take photographs.' Taking over the mantle of 'Round the Horne', 'Stop Messing About' carried on the comedy tradition, which reunited Kenneth Williams with his 'Carry On' co-star Joan Sims and Hugh Paddick. These four episodes include the story of a young politician, who can put his hand to anything. It also features the Homey Secretary and his friend Black Rod (who bear a bona similarity to Julian and Sandy), and whose performances on the floor of the House leave a lot to be desired... There's also a dirty wartime romp and the tale of a naughty gnome. We're introduced to Varda Marvello the Mind Reader, and a movie spoof called '2002: A Space Oddity'. Featuring Douglas 'Hot Lips' Smith and 'Crackerjackanory With Mother', 'Stop Messing About' is packed with outrageously funny sketches, parodies and saucy songs. Join Kenneth Williams, Hugh Paddick and Joan Sims as they go beyond 'Round the Horne'.

4.50 From Paddington

Author: Agatha Christie Narrator: Ian Lavender, Joan Sims, June Whitfield Release Date: September 2010

Elspeth McGillicuddy is down from Scotland for a holiday and boards the 4:50 train from Paddington station to visit her friend, Miss Marple. During the journey, another train pulls alongside, and through the window Mrs McGillicuddy witnesses a tall, dark man strangling a blonde woman. She reports what she has seen, yet no one takes any notice. There is no report of any murder, no dead woman found on any train, and the police have no record of any persons reported missing that match the description. Only Miss Marple believes her account, and realising that the body must have been thrown off the train, with the help of maps and train timetables she pinpoints the exact spot where the body must be. With the help of her young friend Lucy Eyelesbarrow, she goes about the tricky task of uncovering a murder - and a cunning murderer... Agatha Christie's intricate mystery is dramatised with a full cast including Ian Lavender as Inspector Craddock, Joan Sims as Mrs McGillicuddy and Susannah Harker as Lucy Eyelesbarrow.
