Round the Horne is the classic BBC radio comedy series which took comedy to a new level of outrageousness in the late 1960s. Kenneth Horne is the suave host, whilst around him orbit those no-holds-barred satellites Kenneth Williams, Betty Marsden, Hugh Paddick and Bill Pertwee. Regular characters Julian and Sandy and Rambling Syd Rumpo make numerous appearances, in amongst an eclectic comedy collage of sketches, songs, spoof series and news reports. The successor to Beyond Our Ken, Round the Horne ran for four series from 1965 to 1968. Scripted by Barry Took and Marty Feldman (series 1-3) and Barry Took, Johnnie Mortimer and Brian Cooke (series 4). Now, as with the Hancock Half Hour Collector's Editions, all four series have been released as CD boxed sets, complete with full track listings and a comprehensive booklet with notes about the programme. This complete run of episodes from the fourth and final series is complemented by The Bona World of Julian & Sandy, a bonus programme in which Maureen Lipman looks at the success of the camp duo, played by Kenneth Williams and Hugh Paddick.
