Using scripts by Spike Milligan and Larry Stephens, The Goon Show was recreated with a 'genetic' theme for one night at the Playhouse Theatre in London. Taking part were Andrew Secombe (son of Harry), Jon Glover (as the voices of Spike Milligan), and Jeffrey Holland (taking on the Peter Sellers roles), with announcements by Christopher Timothy (son of original Goon Show announcer, Andrew) and Lance Ellington singing in for his father Ray. With the music of the big band, The John Wilson Orchestra, the show was an enormous success.
