You don't have to admit to knowing who Sid James, Barbara Windsor and Kenneth Williams are, or to being a devotée of the Carry On films to enjoy this concert. However, your memory for famous radio, television and film signature tunes will be put to the test. The composers are Eric Coates, Haydn Wood and Charles Williams and the programme includes selections from Desert Island Discs, Down Your Way, Dick Barton, Paul Temple, Music While You Work and the Archers. Good luck!
