At the age of 14, Stanley Baxter was talent-spotted for a BBC Scotland radio programme.
He played a variety of parts in hundreds of radio programmes until he was conscripted
at the age of 17. He didn't return to BBC Scotland until It's All Yours with Jimmy
Logan in the 1940s.
He presented his own radio show Stanley Baxter Takes the Mike in 1956, and The
Stanley Baxter show came to our TV screens in 1967.
