Recorded at the BBC's Paris Studio in Lower Regent Street, London. Announcer: Douglas Smith

Round The Horne was born out of the demise of BBC radio comedy Beyond Our Ken, after the end of writer Eric Merriman's involvement. Using the same cast and producer, Barry Took and Marty Feldman were persuaded to write the scripts - which led to four series that ran between 1965 and 1968 - packed full of parodies, recurring characters, catchphrases and double-entendres.

Music by Edwin Braden and the Hornblowers and The Fraser Hayes Four.

Producer: John Simmonds

First broadcast on the BBC Light Programme in April 1967.

MON 09:00 When the Dog Dies (b012r7k7)
Series 2

Catchment if You Can

Ronnie Corbett reunites with the writers of his hit sitcom Sorry, Ian Davidson and Peter Vincent. Sorry ran for seven series on BBC 1 and was number one in the UK ratings.

In the second series of their Radio 4 sitcom, Ronnie plays Sandy Hopper, who is growing old happily along with his dog Henry. His grown up children - both married to people Sandy doesn't approve of at all - would like him to move out of the family home so they can get their hands on their money earlier.

But Sandy's not having this. He's not moving until the dog dies. And not just that, how can he move if he's got a lodger? His daughter is convinced that his too attractive lodger Dolores (Liza Tarbuck) is after Sandy and his money.

Luckily, Sandy has three grandchildren and sometimes a friendly word, a kindly hand on the shoulder can really help a Granddad in the twenty-first century. Man and dog together face a complicated world. There's every chance they'll make it more so.

Sandy's quiet life is shattered by the need to make himself scarce while his daughter Ellie and his son-in-law Blake pretend, for reasons of social mobility and educational opportunity, that his address is their address. Hiding in the shed doesn't seem right for someone who dreams of being a hero. Not in the world's eye, perhaps - but certainly in his grandson Tyson's.

Cast:
Ronnie Corbett ..... Sandy
Liza Tarbuck ...... Dolores
Sally Grace ..... Mrs Pompom
Tilly Vosburgh ..... Ellie
Jonathan Aris ...... Blake
Daniel Bridle .....Tyson
Stephen Critchlow ...... Mr Mountjoy

Parsnip Junction

"Parsnip Junction"

Radio 4's most curmudgeonly author is back for a new series, complete with his trusty companion Elgar, his pipe and his never ending capacity for scrimping and scraping at whatever scraps his agent, Ping, can offer him to keep body, mind and cat together.

Ed Reardon ..... Christopher Douglas
Ping ..... Barunka O'Shaughnessy
Py ..... Katy Wix
Charles ..... Geoffrey Palmer
Pearl ..... Rita May
Olive ..... Stephanie Cole
Stan ..... Geoffrey Whitehead

Written by Andrew Nickolds and Christopher Douglas
Produced by Dawn Ellis

Ed finds himself in the middle of some sibling rivalry when Ping's sister, Py, undertakes some work experience at the agency. Ed finds the 'can-do' attitude of Py rather refreshing after Ping's normal 'might be a problem' response, particularly when she finds him some paid work with one Charles Cobbold, reinventing the much loved children's classic 'Parsnip Junction'. If Ed can withstand Charles' Communist tendencies and his penchant for porn he may be on to a winner.
