A programme for children at home.
Storyteller this week: Nancy Quayle
An unscripted comedy show devised by David Croft.
with Lance Percival, Victor Spinetti, Peter Reeves, Anne Cunningham, Betty Impey and the Boss Man, Jeremy Hawk.
(Victor Spinetti is appearing in "Oh What A Lovely War" at Wyndham's Theatre, London)
Once again the Boss Man, Jeremy Hawk, hands out the cards to the five members of the cast, takes a deep breath, and waits for the (strictly unscripted) fun to begin. In this off-beat comedy show each card bears the characters, situations, and first lines which form the outline of the programme. The contents, of course, come as a complete surprise to the cast, and nobody knows what anybody is going to do or say next - least of all John Barry and his musicians, who are ready at the drop of a crochet to provide the impromptu musical links.
in which Danny Kaye and his special guests Juliet Prowse, Howard Morris, The Levee Singers entertain to the music of Paul Weston and his Orchestra with The Tony Charmoli Dancers.

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.
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.
