Written by Barry Took and Marty Feldman, and broadcast between 1965 and 1968, Round the Horne starred Kenneth Horne, Hugh Paddick, Kenneth Williams, Betty Marsden and Bill Pertwee, with significant contributions from news-reader Douglas Smith. The series is perhaps best known for the outrageously camp Julian and Sandy (Paddick and Williams), and other memorable characters included folk singer Rambling Syd Rumpo (Williams), J Peasmold Gruntfuttock (also Williams) and tv personality Seamus Android (Pertwee).
The series' galaxy of talent, both writing and performing, produced programmes which are quintessentially sixties yet hilarious to this day. Though RTH was topical, todays' listeners' pleasure is little impaired by references to now-forgotten celebs - the essential humour is timeless.
