With Frank Muir, Denis Norden, Charles Maxwell and David Hatch.

Announcer: Robin Boyle.

Legendary scriptwriting duo Frank Muir and Denis Norden and their producer Charles Maxwell recapture the exciting atmosphere of making one of BBC radio's most outstanding comedy series of the 1950s - and still regularly heard on BBC Radio 4 Extra.

Originally broadcast on the BBC Light Programme, Take It From Here ran for 13 series from 1948 to 1960, starring Jimmy Edwards, Dick Bentley, Joy Nichols, June Whitfield, Alma Cogan, Wallace Eton and Clarence Wright.

David Hatch, performer and BBC comedy producer, manages to ask a few questions despite irrelevant interruptions from The Glums - the dysfunctional family who became much-loved series regulars.

Producer: Charles Maxwell
