More surreal clowning from one of the greatest comedy teams on radio. Goon but not forgotten! In these episodes, Neddie attempts to swim across the Regent’s Park Canal with the help of a bottle of green liquid; the Russians force a satellite into the ionosphere (filthy swines!); two crooks insure Neddie’s life for 10,000 pounds, and postman Neddie gets stolen. The episodes are: The Great Regent’s Park Swim—Series 8, Episode 4 (21st October 1957); The Space Age—Series 8, Episode 6 (4th November 1957); The Policy—Series 8, Episode 9 (25th November 1957); and The Stolen Postman—Series 8, Episode 11 (9th December 1957). Please note: some of the humor on this recording reflects the era in which it was first broadcast, and due to the age of the source material, the sound quality may vary.
