MY HUSBAND HAS BEEN COLLECTING OLD TIME RADIO SHOWS FOR A LONG TIME NOW. HE LISTENS TO THEM WHILE HE IS WORKING IN THE DARKROOM.
WE THOUGHT WE WOULD SHARE THEM WITH OTHERS SO THEY COULD ENJOY THEM ALSO.
Beyond Our Ken is much less firmly etched on the minds of the public than its more successful successor. However it ran for twice the length- a total of eight series spanning seven years. Almost all cast members later went on to star in Round the Horne, which differed little in style and content. In fact many of its characters later metamorphosed into Round The Horne favorites. Writers Barry Took and Eric Merriman saw Kenneth Horne as the perfect example of respectability around which to devise a comedy programme. They began writing it in 1957 and it was first broadcast on Tuesday 1st July 1958.
It is frightening to think that the series almost never started, as Kenneth Horne suffered a major stroke in 1957 which caused him to lose the ability to speak. Thankfully he made a speedy recovery.
