Publisher's Summary

On the Margin was a six part BBC 2 TV British satirical comedy sketch show written and performed by Alan Bennett and a regular cast including John "Strictly Come Dancing" Sergeant. Produced by Sydney Lotterby of Yes Minister and Porridge fame. Each instalment featured a mixture of sketches (some foreshadowing Bennett's subsequent television dramas, others mocking television clich├ęs, such as documentaries about working-class Northern writers and discussion programmes featuring pretentious critics). This is a never before broadcast compilation of sketches and extracts from the TV series before the tapes where wiped.

Charming and fun!

Some "Beyond the Fringe"-style humor from Alan Bennett. Very enjoyable if you like review-style humor vignettes. The only drawback is the download is less than an hour long. But highly recommended nevertheless!
