  1. Duncan says:

    Wrong for so many reasons. I feel ill now.

    A quick question : Who was the show presenter at the beginning and end of the clip? Didn’t he also used to be on the Basil Brush show?

  2. davyh says:

    Yes! Mr Roy! (Roy North)

  3. davyh says:

    PS: I watched only the first 5 seconds, prompted by Duncan’s question. Couldn’t summon the courage to watch any more.

  4. Paul says:

    …didn’t she have a hysterical rectumy?

  5. dickvandyke says:

    Now I’m older, I find the idea for this quite comical. (Although I don’t need to watch it again – obviously).

    The whole Hylda Baker ‘She knows y’know’ Lancashire malapropism madness was extremely well conceived and undoubtedly influencial to those that followed. I suspect that anyone who served a long apprenticeship through British Music Halls deserves respect.

    I recall reading that she kept pet monkeys and (I can say this without fear of contraception) had a voracious appetite for very young men.

    And Lee … I always had Arthur down as your favourite uncle.

  6. davyh says:

    I still don’t want to watch it though.

  7. Big Stupid says:

    I guess that’s the cold shower I needed after the other video.

  8. Paul says:

    Brilliant old clip. Roy North memories too. Love the grim fun fair setting.

  9. Lola says:

    That’s my childhood right there
