MILLIGAN, Spike

The Goon Show: Series Six Number Five: The Case Of The Missing C.D. Plates

London: N.p. [BBC], 1955

20 mimeographed pp., secured with split pin to top left. Two title pages (see below). Light age-toning, and some dog-earing to lower front corner, otherwise a very good copy which, apart from an occasional pencilled pair of brackets in the text and a pencilled tick to first title page, carries no markings.

First edition. Series Six, Number Five, first broadcast on 18 October 1955.
There are two title pages to this script, the first giving the title and recording and transmission details, the second carrying a cast list and synopsis. This format is usually found on BBC Transcription copies, which were edited slightly for the North American market to eliminate any references which would not travel. Usually, such copies carry the words 'TRANSCRIPTION. AMERICA: NBC NETWORK.' on the front title page. No such wording appears on this copy.
A recording of this episode of The Goon Show exists in the BBC Sound Archives, and was issued on the Goon Show 3 compilation CD in 2009.
Scarce, and an interesting anomaly.
