Episode 8 of 16

Douglas Smith plays the world, while Julian and Sandy sing bona songs. Stars Kenneth Horne and Hugh Paddick. From April 1968.

In 'Around The World in Ten Minutes' Douglas Smith plays the world, while Julian and Sandy are bursting into 'Bona Songs'.

Stars Kenneth Horne, Kenneth Williams, Hugh Paddick and Betty Marsden.

Recorded at the BBC's Paris Studio in Lower Regent Street, London. Announcer: Douglas Smith

Round The Horne was born out of the demise of BBC radio comedy Beyond Our Ken, after the end of writer Eric Merriman's involvement. Using the same cast and producer, Barry Took and Marty Feldman were persuaded to write the scripts - which led to four series that ran between 1965 and 1968 - packed full of parodies, recurring characters, catchphrases and double-entendres.

Written by Barry Took, Johnnie Mortimer and Brian Cooke.

Music by the Max Harris Group.

Producer: John Simmonds

First broadcast on the BBC Radio 2 in April 1968.
