BBC Radio 4 Extra - Kenny Everett - Captain Kremmen

Sensational Solution
Kenny Everett - Captain Kremmen Episode 9 of 25
Last on
Last Friday 05:55
6 hours left to listen


GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It\'s almost like the BBC have got something against Kenny Everett, or something ...

There are 25 episodes, 8 are already no longer available, and I haven\'t heard any of them.

(It was most unfortunate that my computer stopped working a month or so ago. I\'ve been struggling to catch up ever since, but was lulled into a false sense of security by the BBC\'s promise that they would make everything available for 30 days.)

Wazzocks!!!

They didn\'t \"promise that they would make everything available for 30 days\" by a certain date.

Have you searched for the Kremmen material on youtube?

In addition, this place:


Kenny Everett

may get you some results.

The only small print I\'ve seen is this:

I\'ve almost certainly heard the first 8 episodes before.  Indeed, I think the last time I heard from Captain Kremmen, he was just starting to be menaced by the dreaded Putron Stench Ray. Episode 9 mercifully picks up the story in just the right place. There is a God. ;)

I\'ve been experiencing the same frustration. I only got two or three of the first five of Kremmen. I do think I have Maurice Cole, though. If you\'d like, I\'ll take a look.

By going back through the schedule, I have arrived at [video]http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b007jr6k[/video]. Is this of any use?

Yes, very much so! Thanks - you\'ve saved my bacon.

I\'d wanted to listen to the series again this time round, but I wasn\'t going to bother, after finding this anomaly.

I thought that even if I could bring myself to use the BBC\'s own schedules instead of DigiGuide, they would only point to the same outdated page, but on reflection, that was irrational of me.

Missed the first two episodes of the series altogether.

I don\'t know how one is supposed to remember which programmes aren\'t available for the advertised 4 weeks.
