Radio Times - Graham Stark (1964)
My first Radio Times posting of the new year and gracing this 1964 cover is the late Graham Stark advertising the fact that his new show, The Graham Stark Show is back on air every Tuesday. All the editions of the show were scripted by Johnny Speight and each one featured a different group of supporting actors, including Deryck Guyler, Arthur Mullard, Derek Nimmo, Patricia Hayes and Warren Mitchell. Stark worked and socialised quite a bit with Spike Milligan and Peter Sellers, and is mentioned throughout biographies of them, such as Pauline Scudamore's (1985) biography of Milligan, and especially in Roger Lewis's comprehensive (1995) biography of Sellers.
