A Tribute To Greatness Part Two - A Strolling Player Looks Back
starring Kenneth Williams, Joan Sims and John Moffat
written by Myles Rudge with music by Ted Dicks
broadcast on BBC Radio 3 17 November 1969
Introduction by Martin Daulby
The second episode of Tribute, 'A Strolling Player Looks Back' - was recorded at No.2 Piccadilly Studios (not the Grafton as the internet would have it) and eulogises Plantagenet Runciman, a kind of composite of the grand old Edwardian lions of theatre.
In this it prefigures Harry Enfield's Emmy -winning spoof 1989 pseudo-documentary Norbert Smith: a life?, which similarly lampooned a thespian composite of Gielgud, Richardson and Olivier.1
