Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description:

Immensely popular and hugely influential, the groundbreaking series The Goon Show changed the face of British comedy. Now, for the first time, this box set collection presents the episodes in chronological order as they were scheduled to be broadcast. This fifth volume includes: The Nasty Affair at the Burami Oasis, Drums Along the Mersey, The Nadger Plague, The Spectre of Tintagel, The Sleeping Prince, The Great Bank Robbery, Personal Narrative, The Mystery of the Fake Neddie Seagoons (aka The Case of the Fake Neddie Seagoons), What’s My Line?, The Telephone, The Flea, and Operation Christmas Duff. Also, there are some rare archive bonus items, including: Curiouser and Curiouser—an anthology of Anglo-American humor featuring Peter Sellers and Spike Milligan—and a recording of the cast rehearsal of The Nasty Affair at the Burami Oasis. Two illustrated booklets tell the story of the show’s development with reference to original archive paperwork, plus the history of the recordings themselves. Remastered using new material and the latest technology to give the best possible sound quality, these recordings will appeal to all collectors of The Goon Show.
