Much Binding In The Marsh

Much Binding In The Marsh

MUCH BINDING IN THE MARSH. Comedy radio show broadcast from 1944 to 1954, firstly by the BBC and subsequently Radio Luxembourg. It starred Kenneth Horne and Richard Murdoch and as senior staff in a fictional RAF station battling red-tape and wartime inconvenience. Over the years the station turned to non-combatant operations, became a country club ("the proposed membership drive has been cancelled as it is far cheaper to give everyone a bus ticket") and finally a newspaper "The Weekly Bind". The programme's title may have been inspired by the RAF station a Moreton-In-Marsh along with the word "binding", period RAF slang for whining or complaining. One of the most fondly remembered parts of the show was the closing theme tune, with topical lyrics each week referring to the plot of the episode, written and sung by members of the cast. The show was broadcast on BBC radio from 1944 to 1950, before briefly being cancelled and transferring to Radio Luxembourg between 1950-1951, after which it returned to the BBC until its run ended in 1954.
