Alan Bennett's On the Margin | [Alan Bennett]

Alan Bennett's On the Margin

Produced by Sydney Lotterby of Yes Minister and Porridge fame. Each instalment featured a mixture of sketches (some foreshadowing Bennett's subsequent television dramas, others mocking television clichés, such as documentaries about working-class Northern writers and discussion programmes featuring pretentious critics). This is a never before broadcast compilation of sketches and extracts from the TV series before the tapes where wiped.

    "Charming and fun!"

    Some "Beyond the Fringe"-style humor from Alan Bennett. Very enjoyable if you like review-style humor vignettes. The only drawback is the download is less than an hour long. But highly recommended nevertheless!
