How fabulous to see this clip! Especially after having seen "Think No Evil of Us" so many times and being so familiar with the back story of "The Rag and Bone Man". Thanks for posting!

A nice piece of serendipity, to have the winning entry read on tv by Kenneth Williams, and then end up becoming a Kenneth Williams impersonator! Though, in fact, David can impersonate far more people than just Kenneth Williams. Incidentally, the full recording of David's story being read by Kenneth on Jackanory is on-line at http://bensonianarchive.podomatic.com
