Zany Square World
26 July 2006 | by barnesmailSee all my reviews

Michael Bentine produced a great TV comedy series to amuse UK viewers in the 1960s, unlikely to be repeated as it was in monochrome.

It comprised various zany sketches and mock news bulletins.

One memorable sketch showed BBC workers escaping from the Television Centre by tunneling beneath the weather studio and other parts of the building.

One got out to climb into what appeared to be a helicopter canopy -- but on zooming out, was actually a bubble car.

Mock news bulletin included items like "The new MP for Whitherington made his maiden speech in the Commons today. In answer to his question, the Prime Minister replied 'First on the right and second on the left'."

Another was "Here is a correction to an earlier bulletin. We should have said the opposition leader described the new transport minister as the right person to put in charge of public conveyances."
