: THE GOON SHOW

with Peter Sellers
Harry Secombe , Spike Milligan in ' The Fireball of Milton Street'
In the little Sussex hamlet of Milton Street 'twixt Alfriston and Polegate, word spread among the villagers that the end of the world was at hand. Henry Crun , the gouty old village alchemist, had seen a strange phenomenon through his telescope. Then, on. the night of Tuesday, January n, 1801, the Long Man of Wilmington disappeared. It was a night that never ended — darkness completely enveloped Milton Street for more than fifty hours. The villagers said the sky had fallen, but Mistress Bannister , an old trot from Pevensey Marshes, knew better. She had foreseen it all in her readings of the pitchblende.
Cast in order of speaking:
The Ray Ellington Quartet
Max Geldray
Orchestra conducted by Wally Stott
Announcer, Wallace Greenslade

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
