Celebrating two of BBC radio's all-time favourite comedies, Beyond Our Ken and Round the Horne.

In this special celebratory programme, former Head of BBC Radio Light Entertainment Jonathan James-Moore presents the full story behind the legendary shows Beyond Our Ken and Round the Horne .

For a decade from 1958, Beyond Our Ken and Round the Horne ruled the airwaves, with their zany humour, quick-fire scripts and eclectic ensemble of memorable characters.

This release includes the first and last episodes from both groundbreaking series, restored to their fullest versions, plus conversations with the last surviving cast members Ron Moody and Bill Pertwee . There are contributions too from Andy Merriman , the son of scriptwriter Eric Merriman , and Lyn Took , the widow of scriptwriter Barry Took .

To add to the fun, David Benson , writer and performer of The Private World of Kenneth Williams , joins Jonathan James-Moore in the guise of radio butler ' Benson ' and presents some fascinating BBC memos charting the history and development of both series, as well as extracts from the diary of Kenneth Williams .

With a wealth of sketches, clips and interviews, plus four fantastic episodes, this is an unmissable treat for all fans of these two great radio comedies.

Have you always loved reading but sometimes find it hard to find the time? Theres nothing quite like curling up with a good book but many of us cant do that as much as wed like. We sacrifice this special time because we have so many other things to do each day. Its a common problem and its the reason why people on average are not reading as much as they once did. Audio books bring the story to life just as the storytellers of the past did. They allow you to experience the book in a whole new way; in the way the writer felt and heard it in their head. You can feel the emotion when you allow audio books to let the story come to life.
