Network Distributing will release a DVD and Blu-Ray edition of Will Hay’s 1934 comedy Radio Parade of 1935, known in the US as Radio Follies.
Comedy legend Will Hay leads an all-star cast in this whimsical critique of the highbrow state of then-contemporary BBC radio programming. Co-starring Hollywood’s Helen Chandler, light comedian Clifford Mollison and noted farceur Alfred Drayton, Radio Parade of 1935 also features celebrated music hall acts Western Brothers and Clapham & Dwyer. It is presented as a brand-new High Definition transfer from the original film elements and features two scenes in their original Declare.
William Garland, Director General of the NBG, is in a quandary. Complaints about his radio station’s programming are on the increase and he needs to stem the tide. His solution: promote the Head of Complaints to Head of Programmes!
