First broadcast:
Saturday 11 June 2011

Can it be true? Yes, famed memory man, treader of the boards and gourmand of corner shops Count Arthur Strong allows Mark Radcliffe to probe deeply into his past career and deeds, with a selection of episodes from his life.

The variety star opens up as never before - his childhood, his early forays into show business, his army days, the lack of hot soup in France, and what happened when he owned a barge with Stan Stennett and Roy Walker.

A blistering, some-holds-barred tell-all straight from the mouth of the horse himself. Learn, definitively, how he became a Count.

Asking the probing questions is Radio 2 & 6 Music DJ Mark Radcliffe (Mark and Lard), and he knows where the skeletons are hidden - he produced Count Arthur Strong's Radio Show.

It features a selection of the finest episodes from Radio 4's Count Arthur Strong's Radio Show, the comic creation of Steve Delaney.
