Good old ' PC 49'!
14 February 2014 | by mprstephenson-634-180449See all my reviews

When I was a youngster, 'PC 49', along with 'Dick Barton, Special Agent',all the 'Paul Temple' series, were almost compulsory listening to almost everyone in the country. As per usual, the BBC, along with almost everything else worth saving destroyed the recordings. How many of the radio comedy shows of the 40s and 50s remain,( 'Variety Bandbox', 'Up the Pole', 'Take it from Here', Eric Barker, 'Just Fancy' remain, and how much Max Miller material is still around? Nowadays,hardly anything is worth saving, so naturally, this modern tripe will still be available in 100 years time! No-one will want to listen to it, as we will have ' moved on' by that time.

Anyone at the BBC on more than ' national minimum wage' is overpaid!
