An early piece of masterful comedy, from the combined writing talents of Frank Muir and Denis Norden, "Take it from Here" was one of the best BBC Radio comedies of the Fifties, lasting for a whopping eleven years. Indeed, it swept in a new era of comedy, for the nation to split their sides with ...
Muir and Norden's literate scripts - and the madcap adventures of Dick Bentley, "Professor" Jimmy Edwards and June Whitfield - were a barrage of puns, TIFH "Oscar"-winning screen skits, weekly reports on the marathon engagement of drippy Ron and doting Eth (of "The Glums"), and other zany, clever ideas, ahead of their time.
"Oh, Ron!", and the inevitable response "Oh, Eth!", became a despairing catchphrase that swept the land. Now we can laugh again at the timeless humour, in these four episodes from 1957-59. Oh, bliss!
