Brian Cooke says: "Two weeks before we were due to start the next series of Round the Horne, Kenneth Horne passed away. It was the 14th of February 1969. Johnnie Mortimer and I had successfully written half of the fourth series with Barry Took, and had spent many months working on what would have comprised the fifth. Fast-forward 48 years. I took these ?pieces' out of the drawers they'd been consigned to and read them all again. It was a revelation! Horne A'Plenty
is from pretty much the same team that brought you Round the Horne... Revisited some 12 years ago. Same director, almost all of the same actors, same musical director... and me. I hope you enjoy this new show as much as Johnnie and I enjoyed writing it all those years ago.?"
