Beyond Our Ken

Beyond Our Ken (19581964) is a radio comedy program, the predecessor to Round the Horne (19651968). Both programs starred Kenneth Horne, Kenneth Williams, Hugh Paddick, Betty Marsden and Bill Pertwee, with announcer Douglas Smith. Musical accompaniment was provided by the BBC Revue Orchestra. The name is a pun on Kenneth Horne's name and the (now mainly Northern English and Scots) word ken, meaning "knowledge or perception". [wikipedia]
