Our power will be cut this morning, so I'm rushing around trying to get all tasks completed before shut-down. I'd liked to have done something to mourn Sir Norman, but here's a bit of good comedy instead. Scroll down; it's there somewhere!
For those who've not heard of 'Round the Horne', it was a BBC Radio comedy programme from the 60's. Kenneth Horne was the 'compere', and the cast included Kenneth Williams, Hugh Paddick, and Bill Pertwee. The early scripts were written by dream-team Barry Took and Marty Feldman.
The two gay characters, Julian and Sandy, who appear in the show became a British institution. This sketch is from 1966 where the two 'out of work actors' are running a ballet company called Bona Ballet. I hope you enjoy the above. Round the Horne was, and still is, one of my very favourite comedy shows.
