Beyond Our Ken : Series One, CD-Audio Book

Beyond Our Ken : Series One CD-Audio

Narrated by Hugh Paddick, Kenneth Horne, Betty Marsden, Kenneth Williams, Ron Moody

CD-Audio

Description

Kenneth Horne, Kenneth Williams, Hugh Paddick, Betty Marsden and Ron Moody star in the surviving 13 episodes from the very first series of the classic weekly show, the forerunner to Round the Horne.

Between 1958 and 1964, Beyond Our Ken lit up the airwaves.

A madcap mix of sketches and songs, it remains as funny today as when it was first broadcast.

Full of witty wordplay, larger-than-life characters, comic catchphrases and sublimely silly humour, the show introduced regulars such as Rodney and Charles, countryman Arthur Fallowfield and roving reporter Cecil Snaith.

Enjoy regular documentary feature 'Hornerama', plan a break with 'Kenneth Horne's Holiday Bureau', listen to Parisian caberet artist Maurice Chandelier, and meet Felicity and Ambrose - the happiest couple in Great Britain.

With episodes written by Eric Merriman and Barry Took, and musical interludes from The Malcolm Mitchell Trio and The Fraser Hayes Four, join avuncular host Kenneth Horne and friends in this hilarious precursor to Round the Horne.

Duration: 6 hours 30 mins approx.
