An appreciation of comedian Robb Wilton, written & presented by Russell Davies and produced by Neil Cargill. PROGRAMME CONTAINS ARCHIVE MATERIAL - SEE PASB FOR DETAILS
The bumbling goodwill of the Home Guard, the pettiness of small-town officialdom and the shambolic progress of everyday conversation were the hallamrks of Robb Wilton's comedy. Russell Davies, in the company of Michael Williams and Michael KILGARRIFF, recalls the clarity of observation that could inspire laughter even in the immediate shadow of "the day the war broke out".
