The show runs 60 minutes.Its main theme is the story of the BBC re-cycling
used radio shows. The above sketches, etc. are a small part of the show.
I believe that this show has been slightly altered from the
original broadcast, in which I recollect a long rant from David Hatch,
terminating in "I AM THE PRINCE OF DARKNESS!". In this recording the line
is delivered quietly, without the rant, and out of context !
Still David Hatch is an important BBC executive so there may have been
reasons for the change ?
