"Round the Horne" ran from 1965 to 1968 starring Kenneth Horne, Kenneth Williams, Hugh Paddick, Betty Marsden and Bill Pertwee, the weekly comedy brought such characters as Rambling Syd Rumpo, Kenneth Horne Master Spy and Julian and Sandy. With its mixture of surreal humour, verbal games, parody and double entendre, the show pushed the boundaries of comedy at a time when permissiveness was changing society's values. "The Best of Round the Horne" features 20 scripts, chosen by series co-writer Barry Took. Most of them are being published for the first time, along with material which was cut before broadcast. The book includes an introduction to each script by the show's archivist Mat Coward, who has also annotated each script with more information.
