What a fascinating person Tim Brooke-Taylor proved to be. He was expelled at the age of five - from a girls' school - but ended up gaining a law degree at Cambridge. It was here that Tim's showbiz future began with the famous Cambridge Footlights. The rest is history.

Interviewer Chris Serle brought so many interesting and revealing things about Tim's long and still-continuing career in comedy/acting and, of course, writing.

Tim has appeared in films with Orson Welles, also several TV series - most famously The Goodies - and radio comedy from the 1960s. There were many film clips but my favourite was when Tim was on 'This is Your Life' and Spike Milligan came on in the sort of zany way only he could.

There evening received a terrific reaction from the audience with a wide range of questions, but most of all through seeing and enjoying Tim as the really funny and talented man he is.
