The Harpoon
BBC Radio 4 comedy series presenting a spoof 1950's boy's comic. Spiffing! (14 30min episodes)

BBC Radio 4 comedy series broadcast in 14 episodes from 1991 to 1994, presenting a spoof of the jingoistic 1950's boys' comic, with tales of square-jawed heroes, hobby tips for the practical boy, readers' letters and "your old chum" the Editor (played by Alistair McGowan). Pointless, patronising, politically incorrect and spiffing good fun! Nominated for a British Comedy Award for Best Radio Comedy in 1992.
