Michael Bentine remembers It's A Square World
It's A Square World firmly established Michael Bentine as a highly individual television comedian; it was a prizewinner at the Montreux Festival in 1963. Says Bentine: 'Looking back I suppose the series was a pioneer, containing the essence of almost every comedy show that followed it - Monty Python, The Goodies and Ronnie Barker have all acknowledged their debt. It was essentially a barmy documentary but based on total logic. After the 'pilot' show I went down with a pulmonary embolism and was flat on my back for six months.Then was asked to do a series of 12 - all live - as a sort of recuperation. I'm surprised it didn't kill me. 'We did some classic things sinking the House of Commons with a Chinese junk, discovering, the source of the Thames was a dripping tap, sending the TV Centre into orbit with Patrick Moore. We used the TV Centre for lots of ideas, organising a mass break-out from it and having man-eating orchid drop dead after it had visited the canteen. In the end I received a memo: "Under no circumstances is the TV Centre to be used for purposes of entertainment" '

A series of ten programmes 4: Riflemen Form Introduced by Christopher Roads
Military men did not look on the rifle with much favour in the 18th and early 19th centuries: they preferred the smooth-bore musket. The Kentucky rifle was one of the first rifles to be employed in warfare, in the American War of Independence, but not by regular soldiers. With the arrival of a French design called the Minie, the rifle was finally adopted by the British army as the standard arm of the regular soldier - and proved its worth against the Russians in the Crimean War.
