This weekly (“twice a fortnight”) BBC1 series was filmed before a studio audience plied with alcohol to warm them up resulting in a little too much anarchic “audience participation” which came across as gruesomely amateur.
But the short series – which aired late on Saturday nights in October, November and December 1967 (after Match of the Day) – gave invaluable early television experience to future members of The Goodies and Monty Python’s Flying Circus.
The series was sired by the radio programme I’m Sorry, I’ll Read That Again.
