MILLIGAN, Spike

The Goon Show: Series Six Number Three: The Lost Emperor

London: N.p. [BBC], 1955

22 mimeographed pp., secured with split pin to top left. A few pencilled notes to blank of final page, a pencilled tick to title page, otherwise a clean copy. A little edgewear and light age-toning, otherwise a near fine example.

First edition. Series six, Number Three, first broadcast on 4 october 1955.
the title page carries transmission details only, including the words: 'TRANSCRIPTION. AMERICA: NBC NETWORK.' The second page carries the cast information, as well as a somewhat idiosyncratic synopsis of the episode. The script itself begins on p. 3.
From Series Five onwards the BBC Transcription Service made its own recordings of the The Goon Show for broadcast in the United States, later deleting topical or local references which would mean nothing to an American audience. This episode, in its original domestic-consumption form, was released by BBC Audio in 2009 on the Goon Show 3 compilation CD.
Very scarce.
