The classic 1960s radio show, which starred Kenneth Williams, Kenneth Horne, Betty Marsden, Hugh Paddick and Douglas Smith, has been turned into a highly amusing and very entertaining theatre show.
From 1965 to 1968 there wasn't a bigger radio programme in Britain than the ground-breaking Round the Horne, which regularly attracted up to 15 million listeners for each of its half-hour Sunday afternoon shows.
The mix of risqué innuendo, clever wordplay, and saucy camp caricature was way ahead of its time and clearly proved irresistible to its audience.
So, 50 years on from the first of the 67 episodes that were ever broadcast, Round The Horne is back with a compilation of the sketches, routines and infamous movie spoofs originally created by writers Barry Took and Marty Feldman in the 60s.
The Lichfield Garrick stage was turned into the BBC's Paris Studio which, despite its name, was situated in central London.
This modern Apollo Theatre Company production superbly recreates the original 1960s cast with Julian Howard McDowell as Kenneth Horne and Colin Elmer as Kenneth Williams particularly convincing.
But they were well aided in this trip back in time by Eve Winters as Betty Marsden, Jonathan Hansler as Hugh Paddick and Nick Wymer as the announcer Douglas Smith.
Throughout the two recreated 'episodes' the audience was treated to all the regular characters, from Kenneth Williams' Rambling Sid Rumpo and J. Peasemold Gruntfuttock, to Charles and Fiona, Kenneth Horne 'Master Spy', and the camp pairing of Julian and Sandy.
The theatre became the BBC's Paris studio for 2 nights
