The Goons ruled the airwaves in the 1950s and became the most celebrated and influential clowns in radio history. Stand by for more comedy anarchy featuring Neddie Seagoon, Eccles, Grytpype-Thynne, Moriarty, Bluebottle and Major Bloodnok. In The Lost Year (13th December 1955), the year 1956 is missing. Can Seagoon track it down in time? The Great Bank of England Robbery (20th October 1958) sees 'Fingers' Secombe attempting to commit the greatest crime of the twentieth century - but he's stuck in a pillar box. In The Siege of Fort Night (27th December 1986), Fort Night is under siege and can only survive for another 14 days. Can Henry Crun, inventor, save the day? (This version was originally recorded in 1958 and first broadcast in the UK in 1986.) And in The Chinese Legs (7th January 1960), if Ned of Wales isn't Welsh, what is his real nationality? Can his legs really be Chinese? 2 CDs. 1 hr 55 mins.
