Right Said Ted And Myles

A celebration of comedy song-writing team Ted Dicks and Myles Rudge, who together wrote such perennial favourites as Hole in the Ground, Windmill in Old Amsterdam and Right, Said Fred.

Produced by Sir George Martin, their songs were sung by Bernard Cribbins, Kenneth Williams, Joan Sims and many others.

In the flat where they bashed out many of their hits, including Right, Said Fred, they reminisce, along with Bernard Cribbins, about the hey-day of British comic song and, prompted by presenter Phillip Glassborrow, they analyse how the Beatles brought an end to their era but at the same time built upon it.
