Horne Of Plenty

A BBC7 special in which former head of radio light entertainment, Jonathan James-moore former Head of Radio Light Entertainment, and much-missed friend and colleague, presents the story of two of BBC radio's all-time best-loved comedies: Beyond Our Ken and Round the Horne.

With anecdotes from surviving cast members Ron Moody, Bill Pertwee and scriptwriter Brian Cooke plus other behind-the-scenes interviews, including reminiscences from Lyn Took and Andy Merriman, this specially-made for BBC 7 programme gives you the chance to hear the first and last editions of both series: Beyond Our Ken (01/07/58 and 16/02/64); Round the Horne (07/03/65 and 09/06/68).

It is a real treat for Kenneth Horne fans.
