Classic Radio Comedy: Round The Horne – The Eiffel TowerIs Solen

24/10/2019

 

 

 

Round the Horne is a BBC Radio comedy programme starring Kenneth Horne, first transmitted in four series of weekly episodes from 1965 until 1968. The show was created by Barry Took and Marty Feldman, who wrote the first three series. The fourth was written by Took, Johnnie Mortimer, Brian Cooke and Donald Webster.

Horne’s supporting cast comprised Kenneth Williams, Hugh Paddick, Betty Marsden and, in the first three series, Bill Pertwee.

The announcer was Douglas Smith, who also took part in the sketches. All except the last series featured music by Edwin Braden, played by the band “the Hornblowers”, with a song in the middle of each show performed by the close-harmony singing group the Fraser Hayes Four; in the fourth series, the music was by Max Harris with a smaller group of players than the earlier series.

    Got a hole in your heart where your flesh-fueled love of The Walking Dead used to live? Resurrect your appreciation for the genre with We’re Alive: A Story of Survival. This fast-paced zombie apocalypse survival drama follows soldier Michael Cross, who finds himself living a real-life horror story when an undead infestation begins to take over Los Angeles. He joins up with a hodge-podge group of survivors seeking resources, shelter, and safety while struggling to determine if they can trust each other. As the makeshift-family grows closer and works to create a safe haven for themselves, they begin to uncover a series of disturbing clues that will leave them wondering which is the greater of two evils: the undead or their fellow humans. When you’re finished, you can move right into We’re Alive: Lockdown, a continuation of the story that introduces new characters and answers lingering questions about old ones. A third series in the We’re Alive family is also in the works, though a final release date is yet to be announced.

    Welcome to “Welcome to Night Vale”, a twice-monthly fiction podcast from the town of Night Vale, where every conspiracy theory is true.

    Want to jump into Night Vale but are a little freaked out by the fact that we have over 100 episodes, not to mention seven recorded live shows, two novels, and two script collections?

    Don’t be! You can start listening to Welcome to Night Vale with any episode, and you should feel free to skip around, or move backwards. Time is weird, so your listening experience can be, too.

    Plus, the novels and live shows are completely standalone stories, so you can go read, watch, or listen to any of them without having to know anything about the show. We recommend our new novel, It Devours!, a thriller about science, romance, and sand monsters.

    We also just launched a brand new recap show called Good Morning Night Vale. Hosted by cast members Meg Bashwiner, Symphony Sanders, and Hal Lublin, each episode is a deep dive into one episode of Welcome to Night Vale, starting with the very first episode from 2012. It’s a great audio companion for a first time listener,
