Catalogue Note

Milligan's unrecorded original script for the Phantom Raspberry Blower of London Town. The script was later developed by Ronnie Barker and developed firstly into a one-off episode in the 1971 series Six Dates with Barker (with the script credited to Milligan), and secondly - and more famously - into a serial that ran in the 1976 series of The Two Ronnies (with the script credited to Milligan and Gerald Wiley, a pen-name for Barker himself). The current script reveals that the Raspberry Blower originated in an attempt by Milligan to find an appropriate television vehicle for The Goons, working with the producer of the later Goon Shows, Peter Eton. It is believed that the project was shelved when Sellers refused to participate, citing film commitments.
