PRE:13'40"" in - Kenneth Williams appears as Rambling Sid Rumpo and sings 'Will You Still Love Me, Mary-Oh' & 'Joe He Was a Young Cordwangler'. How character of Rambling Sid developed. Thinks Nicholas Parsons needs a deaf aid on 'Just a Minute' - imitates Prof. Stanley Unwin. His favourite word 'pandiculate' which he actually managed to use once.
