Here. You have a few weeks to listen. You can celebrate Viv Stanshall day every day for a while.

So apparently what this is can be found by going here:

There were 13 episodes, recorded from 1975 to 1991, and then in 1996 the BBC took 6 of the episodes and edited them into 5 14-minute segments, which according to Wikipedia “reportedly made even less sense than the originals.”

(I had never realized there was anything beyond the album and the film).

“At present the original radio series remains unreleased, but exist as off air recordings made by listeners at home. The quality ranges from good to excellent.”

It looks to me like you could get all of it on 3 CD’s. Which Crooked Timber commenter runs the bootleg record label? I forget….

What were Sir Henry’s views on inequality and universal wealth taxation?

Yes, for a moment I thought this was going to be a really interesting take on Piketty…
