Scriptwriter and sometime performer Eddie Braben does today at his home in North Wales after a short illness.

Best known as a scriptwriter for the likes of Ken Dodd and, more famously, Morecombe and Wise I also remember his radio programmes The Show with Ten Legs and The Show with No Name. Lost classics for sure.

RIP Eddie.

Brilliant man.

Paul Merton did a nice retrospective about him in the second half of Radio 4's PM Prog. tonight.

1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 35 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.
