A few evenings ago, BBC Four screened two programmes from the old BBC Two Reputations series. Funnily enough, they made the same startling revelation about their two respective subjects, Frankie Howerd and Liberace. Can you guess what it was?
Anyway, the Howerd programme featured a rarely-shown clip from Whoops Baghdad, essentially Up Pompeii but set against the backdrop of the Caliphate. Well, they couldn't make that today, could they? But they really should re-make Whoops Baghdad, or at least make something with that title, giving Frankie Howerd's part (so to speak) to the much camper Miranda Blair.
