Spike Milligan at Beeb (27 vignettes from 50s to 90s, 2 x tapes)

Product description

The comic genius of Spike Milligan changed the face of radio comedy through 'The Goon Show'. But there's more, much more to Spike at the Beeb.

Here, Milligan chooses and introduces classic clips from an astonishing BBC career : readings from his books 'Puckoon' and 'Adolf Hitler My Part in His Downfall', poems, songs, sketches, extracts from 'Q6' and 'In the Psychiatrist's Chair', Indian reminiscences and the complete, unexpurgated version of 'The Starlings' - the only Goon show recorded outside London without an audience.
