    Between 1965 and 1969 the successor to "Beyond Our Ken" ruled the airwaves. The show was scripted by Barry Took and Marty Feldman with music from the Fraser Hayes Four. Kenneth Horne was the golden-voiced straight man of the show, with the incredible comic talents of Kenneth Williams, Betty Marsden, Hugh Paddick, and Bill Pertwee taking on the guise of a score of characters in fast and funny sketches. Its zany humour will always be remembered as a high point of '60s radio.

    In Round The Horne 2 you can hear the complete version of "The Admirable Loombucket" (any resemblance to "The Admirable Crichton" being entirely intentional), the eerie tale of "The Phantom of the Bogmouth Hippodrome" (which preceded Mr Lloyd-Webber's little number by some years), and the African adventure "Lipharvest of the River".
