There were two series made in 1967, one for commercial TV called 'At Last the 1948 Show'. I think Terry Jones may have been in it. I mention it because it was very similar to 'Twice A Fortnight', and Terry Jones most certainly was NOT in TAF. I have very clear memories with that programme having been involved with the BBC at the time. The full cast were: Graham Garden and Bill Oddie (who did the majority of the writing) Jonathan Lynn, Dilys Watling, Tony Buffery and Ronald Fletcher with music by The Dave Lee Group. It ran for thirteen weeks on Saturday nights at 2245-2315, ending on December 23rd 1967, the programmes being recorded at the BBC TV Theatre, Shepherds Bush the previous Sunday. Ronald Fletcher, who died in the mid 1990s was a former newsreader and announcer on BBC Radio Home Service & Radio 4 and was an 'establishment' figure called upon to sometimes appear outlandish (in one episode dressed in a toga, he was fed grapes by Dilys Watling)
