Desert Island Discs: Archive 1991-1996

The castaway on Desert Island Discs this week is actor Gorden Kaye. Lovers of British situation comedy knew him a long time ago as a familiar supporting figure in It Ain't Half Hot, Mum and Are You Being Served?, but for most people he has only one part: that of the French cafe owner Rene Artois in 'Allo 'Allo. He'll be talking to Sue Lawley about his childhood years in Yorkshire, his love of comedy and natural talent for it, and the loyalty of his audience through good and bad times.[Taken from the original programme material for this archive edition of Desert Island Discs] Favourite track: Hallelujah Chorus by George Frideric HandelBook: This Is Your Life by Gorden KayeLuxury: A clock given to him for turning on the Oxford lights
