Round the Horne was the radio show which kept the nation in stitches from 1965 to 1968. Starring Kenneth Horne, Kenneth Williams, Hugh Paddick, Betty Marsden and Bill Pertwee, the weekly comedy brought us such classic characters as Rambling Syd Rumpo, Kenneth Horne Master Spy and the unforgettable Julian and Sandy. With its mixture of surreal humour, verbal games, parody and double entendre, the show pushed the boundaries of comedy at a time when permissiveness was changing society's values.The Best of Round the Horne features 20 classic scripts, chosen by series co-writer Barry Took. Most of them are being published for the first time, along with exclusive material which was cut before broadcast. The book includes an introduction to each script by the show's archivist Mat Coward, who has also annotated each script with a wealth of extra information. The book provides a unique collection for fans of the series.
