'It's That Man Again' in Bangor

Duration: 01:22

Excerpt from 1940 broadcast of 'It's That Man Again' with Arthur Askey when it had moved to Bangor in order to avoid the London blitz in the Second World War. It stayed there for the course of the war. This excerpt has the vague sound of a bomb explosion in the background which actually killed a technician, though in typical style, the broadcast never stopped.
