Early episodes are lost. With the exception of two episodes from 1964, the episodes from October 1960 onwards survive intact (though sometimes only as telerecordings edited for export), and have been issued on DVD. See more »
Given the comedy talent here things should be better. However it is useful to see early work by Johnny Speight and Nicholas Parson's straight man. Arthur Haynes has two main characters, the tramp and the effeminate tailor. The sketches are studio bound with sets that make Crossroads solid by comparison. Quite how Aileen Cochrane got a gig by any other means than sleeping with Val Parnell is beyond me. Good support in the comedy from Leslie Noyes, later to be seen in Dad's army in the rear ranks.
