Kenneth Horne

Kenneth Horne (died 1969) starred in the BBC radio programmes "Much Binding in the Marsh[?]", "Beyond Our Ken" and "Round the Horne" - in the latter he was given a number of strange names. As well as being an excellent comedian he was also a fine businessman, giving up business work however due to a stroke and concentrating on his comedy. He died just after the last series of Round the Horne was completed. He was particularly close to Kenneth Williams, who looked on him as a substitute father. He also did some TV advertising and he was in the series Horne A Plenty[?]. Since December 2002, editions of Round the Horne may be heard at 19:30hrs London time (=GMT during the winter months) each Wednesday on the digital service called BBC Radio 7 (available on-line at www.bbc.co.uk/bbc7
