Roger Wilmut's writing career
I got into writing entirely by accident. The starting point was
The Goon Show. This famous BBC radio comedy series was running in the
1950s when I was still at school, and I heard a number of them at the
time. During the 1960s I started recording repeats, and swopping
tapes with other collectors: and because I like to know the original
dates of recordings and any other pertinent information I set about
making a list of all the shows. This was meant entirely as a private
reference for myself and a few friends.
I managed to get some information from the BBC's files, and
produced a reasonably accurate typewritten list. (I should say that
it wasn't just a matter of copying out the BBC's information, which
was often confused or plain wrong - hardly surprising with performers
like the Goons).
