What to expect

How lovely it is to once again vada the dolly old eek of 'Round the Horne', the radio comedy series which ventured where few had gone before in the late 1960s. For four series, suave and unruffled host Kenneth Horne battled manfully with a marauding parade of characters, from enterprising chorus boys Julian and Sandy and warbling songsmith Rambling Syd Rumpo to booming Daphne Whitethigh and breathless thespians Charles and Fiona. Included in this dazzling volume of boundless wit are further instalments of 'The Seamus Android Show', an appearance by Zsa Zsa Poltergeist, the Kenneth Horne ‘Theatre of Suspense’, and songs from Rambling Syd Rumpo. Julian and Sandy's entrepreneurial skills are meanwhile gainfully employed in Bona Books, Bona Tattoo, the Ballet Bona and Bona Productions.
