SAT 14:00 The Original Godfather (b009kgnd)
Legendary writer and TV presenter Denis Norden chats to Paul Jackson about the legacy of his radio comedy partnership with Frank Muir.

The history of British sitcom is peppered with outstanding writing teams, not least Galton & Simpson, Clement & La Frenais, French & Saunders, Curtis & Elton and Aherne & Cash. But the very first - the veritable Godfathers of broadcast comedy - were Denis Norden and Frank Muir.

Born within two years of each other (Frank in 1920, Denis two years later), they shared similar RAF backgrounds and entertainment apprenticeships. After the Second World War, Muir landed a job with the BBC, writing for fellow ex-airman Jimmy Edwards and Norden joined a variety agency, writing for as many as 163 comedians.

Finally in 1947 they were brought together over lunch by Charles Maxwell (other reports claim it was fellow scriptwriter Ted Kavanagh) in the hope that they might hit it off. Thus started a 40 (plus) year partnership which kicked off with Take It From Here (1947-58) – still to be heard on BBC Radio 4 Extra.

Their partnership continued into the early 1990s via My Word! (1956-1990) and My Music (1967-1991). Both series are still repeated in Australia and USA.

In between they wrote for countless stars from Bernard Braden and Peter Sellers to Benny Hill and Bob Monkhouse.

Paul Jackson explores their legacy with Denis himself, and hears from their long suffering secretary, Brenda Talbot and fellow writers Dick Vosburgh, Eric Sykes, Ray Galton, Alan Simpson and Dick Clement & Ian La Frenais.

Frank Muir passed away in 1998 and Denis Norden in 2018.

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. Marty departed after Series 3.

Written by Barry Took, Brian Cooke and Johnnie Mortimer.

Music by the Max Harris Group.

Producer: John Simmonds

First broadcast on the BBC Radio 2 in June 1968.

So if you want motivation, speed, adrenalin and a low-energy light bulb that takes forty minutes to come on, then put on your yellow jersey and catch up with "Another Case Of Milton Jones"

He's joined in his endeavours by his co-stars Tom Goodman-Hill ("Camelot"), Ben Willbond ("Horrible Histories") and Lucy Montgomery ("Down The Line").

Britain's funniest Milton and the king of the one-liner returns with a fully-working cast and a shipload of new jokes for a series of daffy comedy adventures

... and each week, with absolutely no ability or competence, he plunges into a big adventure with utterly funny results...

"Milton Jones is one of Britain's best gagsmiths with a flair for creating daft yet perfect one-liners" - The Guardian
"King of the surreal one-liners" - The Times
"If you haven't caught up with Jones yet - do so!" - The Daily Mail

Episode 5

The Questers continue their search for the Sword of Asnagar. This time they accidentally trespass upon grounds of the Emperor Jackie.

Jackie claims to have the Sword of Asnagar but he'll only hand it over if the Questers, and particularly Penthiselea, stay with him for a while.

In the meantime, Lord Darkness' main evil priest, Gaydok, is upset - he doesn't believe Darkness is evil anymore. In a fit of pique Darkness fires him.

But it's not long before he realises that keeping the faith with the evil hordes isn't as easy as he originally thought...
