This is my butler Knockers. How are you, Knockers?

-All right.

-You're looking well.

0:28:300:28:32

You've been breathing again, haven't you?

0:28:320:28:34

Knockers, I want you to take him for a run round the block,

0:28:340:28:36

he hasn't been today. And don't forget the ball and bat.

0:28:360:28:39

-There you are.

-Good.

-Thank you very much, Knockers.

0:28:390:28:41

He's a good lad. I'd like to say once again,

I'd like to say, ladies and gentlemen, how tickled I am to...

0:29:290:29:32

All these hairy...

0:29:530:29:56

To be here tonight, here in the city,

0:29:590:30:01

this beautiful Edwardian Nissen hut,

0:30:010:30:04

this, one of the seven wonders of Briggate,

0:30:040:30:07

this...

0:30:070:30:09

this lovely theatre, ladies and gentlemen...

0:30:090:30:11

Actually, there's a story attached to this theatre.

0:30:110:30:13

It's on the wall in the gents.

0:30:130:30:15

The style of architecture here is early perpendicular

0:30:180:30:21

and the decorations are Baroque, or Ba-roke.

0:30:210:30:24

It's all "Ba-roke".

0:30:240:30:26

The windows are ba-roke, the doors are ba-roke...

0:30:270:30:30

The manager, he's not too flush either.

0:30:300:30:32

This beautiful...

0:30:340:30:35

The ceiling, the ceiling is an exact replica of the Sistine Chapel

0:30:350:30:38

done in whitewash.

0:30:380:30:40

And notice...

0:30:400:30:41

Notice how the floor is so cunningly made so it just reaches your feet.

0:30:410:30:44

-This is...

-LAUGHTER

0:30:440:30:46

..a feature.

0:30:460:30:48

On your way in, you probably noticed the filigree foyer

0:30:480:30:51

and the half-timber gents

0:30:510:30:52

and...

0:30:520:30:54

All the features of this magnificent building, ladies and gentlemen,

0:30:540:30:57

and as I say, it is really wonderful.

0:30:570:30:59

Tonight is anniversary night.

0:30:590:31:01

It's exactly 25 years ago to the very night

0:31:010:31:03

since the circle collapsed

0:31:030:31:05

-and... Yes!

-LAUGHTER

0:31:050:31:07

Laugh! 25...

0:31:100:31:13

25 years ago, love, there were people sitting up there,

0:31:130:31:15

just like you are now.

0:31:150:31:18

Rows and rows of Toby jugs, all...

0:31:180:31:20

LAUGHTER

0:31:200:31:22

"Here, Mother, have you got any more of that nut brittle?"

0:31:250:31:29

All of a sudden, there was this horrible creaking noise.

0:31:290:31:32

-There it goes again!

-LAUGHTER

0:31:320:31:35

"Cavoomph!" The whole lot fell down, collapsed.

0:31:350:31:37

There was a little old lady, sitting in the middle, underneath,

0:31:370:31:40

just where you are, dear.

0:31:400:31:41

There was a dear, little old lady sitting in that seat

0:31:410:31:44

in the centre underneath, with her lolly ice sticking up in the air.

0:31:440:31:47

This man, this fella...

0:31:470:31:48

..upstairs...

0:31:500:31:51

LAUGHTER

0:31:510:31:53

-..in a kilt...

-HE WHISTLES

0:31:560:31:58

She said, "By Jove, you get a big 'un for sixpence, don't you!"

0:32:010:32:04

LAUGHTER

0:32:040:32:05

They laugh at us down south, you know. They say we wear flat hats.

0:32:090:32:12

Course we wear flat hats, you know why?

0:32:120:32:14

Cos we're flatheads! That's why!

0:32:140:32:16

Those fellas, the men down south, they wear their socks in bed.

0:32:170:32:22

That's not fair to any woman, they should wear clogs like we do.

0:32:220:32:25

Now, my grandad, there was a fella. All his life he worked like a horse.

0:32:270:32:30

People used to follow him with a shovel.

0:32:300:32:32

APPLAUSE

0:32:360:32:37

Me little uncle Willie, he works on the docks in Liverpool,

0:32:370:32:40

and he's what they call a diesel fitter.

0:32:400:32:42

He goes round the dock shed looking in all the cases, saying,

0:32:420:32:44

"Deese'll fit 'er, deese'll fit 'er."

0:32:440:32:46

My grandad was on the stage.

0:32:490:32:51

My grandad was one of the all-time grates.

0:32:510:32:53

My granny used to have to black lead him.

0:32:530:32:55

She is very jealous of him.

0:32:580:32:59

When he goes down for a shovel of coal, she has him followed.

0:32:590:33:02

With a padlock and in braces.

0:33:020:33:05

She frightened the life out of me the other night, me granny.

0:33:050:33:08

She told my grandad she was saving up for a new perm.

0:33:080:33:10

He thought she said a new pram.

0:33:100:33:12

Of course, he hasn't been well, my grandad.

0:33:130:33:15

All through the winter my grandad stood with his back to the fire.

0:33:150:33:18

We had to have him swept.

0:33:180:33:20

Now...

0:33:220:33:24

And now, if you please, the latest news...

0:33:260:33:29

The latest news now is that ladies actually want the vote.

0:33:290:33:32

HIGH-PITCHED CHUCKLE

0:33:320:33:33

You can't do that. We can't let them have that, can we, lads?

0:33:330:33:36

-AUDIENCE:

-Yes!

-No!

0:33:360:33:37

-Cos we're British, aren't we, lads?

-MEN IN AUDIENCE:

-Yes!

0:33:370:33:40

And we will all put our backs out for Britain, won't we, lads?

0:33:400:33:43

-MEN IN AUDIENCE:

-Yes!

0:33:430:33:44

Well, you will, I'm going to have a lie down.

0:33:440:33:47

No, you must admit, ladies, British men are the world's greatest.

0:33:470:33:49

-Aren't we, girls?

-WOMEN IN AUDIENCE, WITHOUT CONVICTION:

-Yes.

0:33:490:33:52

You wouldn't fancy one of those continental Romeos,

0:33:520:33:54

-would you, ladies?

-WOMEN IN AUDIENCE:

-Yes!

0:33:540:33:57

-One of these frisky Frenchmen?

-WOMEN IN AUDIENCE:

-Yes!

0:33:570:34:00

Cos they all think about is, "Aw-haw-haw-haw."

0:34:000:34:03

You wouldn't fancy one of those handsome Italians with

0:34:050:34:07

the black wavy hair, would you, girls?

0:34:070:34:10

-WOMEN IN AUDIENCE:

-Yes!

0:34:100:34:11

You wouldn't! They'd creep up behind you when you're doing the sprouts.

0:34:110:34:14

HE BLOWS RASPBERRY

0:34:140:34:15

So I want to do something really dramatic, Mr Sachs, sir,

0:34:190:34:22

and I think the time has come for us to have a bad salad.

0:34:220:34:24

A sad ballad! Could we have something, Mr Herrmann, like

0:34:240:34:27

"Don't Go Down in the Mine Dad There's Plenty of Slack in Your Trousers"?

0:34:270:34:30

LAUGHTER

0:34:300:34:32

Something. What's something that really...?

0:34:350:34:37

We want to sing something that will really please

0:34:370:34:40

the ladies and gentlemen, a romantic song like

0:34:400:34:42

"It's Only the Hairs on a Gooseberry That Stop It Becoming a Grape."

0:34:420:34:45

What...? Fella looking at me through binoculars here,

0:34:450:34:48

he must think I'm a racehorse.

0:34:480:34:50

What?

0:34:500:34:52

For this romantic eisteddfod, what sort of music do you recommend, sir?

0:34:520:34:56

-Musical comedy.

-Musical comedy! Beautifully judged.

0:34:560:34:59

Beautifully judged. I had three ambitions in my life.

0:34:590:35:02

My first was to sing under your baton. Wave it.

0:35:020:35:04

That's it, that's his baton.

0:35:040:35:06

If they play a wrong note, he bats them on the head with it.

0:35:060:35:08

My second ambition was to do a duet with a beautiful girl in A flat,

0:35:080:35:11

and my third ambition...

0:35:110:35:12

LAUGHTER

0:35:120:35:15

Musical comedy, beautiful. Any particular musical comedy?

0:35:150:35:18

Maid of the mountains.

0:35:180:35:20

The Maid of the Mountains.

0:35:200:35:21

PIANO STARTS AND HE CLEARS HIS THROAT

0:35:210:35:23

HE SINGS LONG WAVERING NOTE

0:35:230:35:25

NOTE DEEPENS

0:35:250:35:26

# Come tell me, pretty maiden

0:35:260:35:30

# Are there any more at home like you?

0:35:300:35:33

-ROUGH WOMAN'S VOICE:

-# There are a few... #

0:35:330:35:35

LAUGHTER

0:35:350:35:36

The Prince one night shoots in for a quick sherbet,

0:35:410:35:43

and there she is, this vision of loveliness.

0:35:430:35:45

Standing on the bar counter on one leg, selling crisps

0:35:450:35:49

and drying out the pint classes with the end of her pigtail.

0:35:490:35:52

It is love at first fright.

0:35:540:35:55

Like all sweethearts in love, their eyes meet, and suddenly, he feels

0:35:550:35:59

something stir in his breast, and he realises...

0:35:590:36:02

his ferret has got loose.

0:36:020:36:03

So...

0:36:030:36:05

What a beautiful girl, but so thin.

0:36:050:36:07

One day she swallows a pickled onion and four lads leave the village.

0:36:070:36:11

Her mother is just the opposite. Her mother is a big, plump, jolly lady.

0:36:170:36:20

She used to go away to sea. She used to be a decoy for a whaling fleet.

0:36:200:36:25

The Prince is determined to serenade his gypsy sweetheart.

0:36:250:36:27

Because she looks very gypsy-ish. She has pierced ears.

0:36:270:36:30

She had walked in front of a dartboard one day,

0:36:300:36:32

wasn't looking where she was going.

0:36:320:36:34

He had met her in the street one day,

0:36:340:36:36

she was selling things door to door in Harrogate and...

0:36:360:36:39

Ha, no chance! So, he...

0:36:390:36:41

He said, "What have you got under your arm?" She said, "Lavender."

0:36:420:36:45

He said, "Oh, how unusual." Well, he...

0:36:450:36:48

He goes down her street at midnight singing his head off,

0:36:510:36:53

and people fling open their bedroom windows

0:36:530:36:55

and throw things down to him, so he goes home and gets changed,

0:36:550:36:59

comes back singing The Student Prince's Legal Aid.

0:36:590:37:02

-Serenade!

-Serenade.

0:37:020:37:04

# Overhead, the moon is beaming

0:37:040:37:09

# O-Overhead, the moon...

0:37:090:37:11

# O... #

0:37:110:37:13

Could I have the note, please, sir?

0:37:130:37:15

MAN SINGS NOTE

0:37:150:37:16

Oh, hell.

0:37:160:37:17

What did you do to him then, missus?

0:37:190:37:21

Mr drummer, could I have the note, please?

0:37:220:37:24

SINGLE DRUMBEAT

0:37:240:37:25

# Overhead, the moon is beaming

0:37:250:37:29

# White as blossoms on the bow

0:37:290:37:33

# Nothing is heard but the sound of the bird... #

0:37:350:37:39

PFFRT!

0:37:390:37:40

LAUGHTER

0:37:400:37:42

Here is a message for the treasurer of the works' Christmas club.

0:37:450:37:50

# One fine day we'll find you... #

0:37:500:37:53

LAUGHTER

0:37:530:37:55

Something sort of romantic. Spanith Eyesh.

0:37:560:38:00

Spanith Eyesh.

0:38:030:38:04

Spanith Eyesh.

0:38:050:38:08

Who the hell are you pushing?

0:38:080:38:10

# Oh...

0:38:100:38:13

# Spanish eyes

0:38:140:38:16

CASTANETS CLICK

0:38:160:38:18

# Loveliest eyes in all of Mexico-ho-o... #

0:38:180:38:22

No, that's no good. No.

0:38:220:38:24

Something more traditional. The Lass With the Delicate Hair.

0:38:260:38:30

By Dan Druff.

0:38:300:38:31

# Young Molly who lived at the foot of the h-h-h-ill

0:38:330:38:39

# Whose fame ev'ry virgin with envy doth fill

0:38:390:38:44

# Of beauty is blessed with so ample a share

0:38:440:38:50

# Men call her the lass with the delicate hair

0:38:500:38:55

# With the fu-huh-huh

0:38:550:38:57

# Fu-huh-huh, fuh-huh-huh-huh-huh

0:38:570:39:01

# Men call her the lass with the...

0:39:010:39:05

# Fuh-huh-huh-huh-ur. #

0:39:050:39:08

INDISTINCT

0:39:130:39:17

Cornish Floral Dance, that's the one.

0:39:170:39:20

# As I walked home on a summer's night

0:39:280:39:31

# When starsh in heaven were shhhining bright

0:39:310:39:35

# Far away from the footlights' glare

0:39:350:39:37

# Into the sweet and scented air... #

0:39:380:39:41

Strange.

0:39:410:39:42

# Of a quaint old Cornish town

0:39:420:39:45

HE HOLDS NOTE

0:39:450:39:48

HE GASPS FOR AIR

0:39:480:39:50

# Borne from afar on a gentle breeze

0:39:500:39:52

# Soft as the murmur of summer seas

0:39:520:39:55

# Distant tones of an old world dance

0:39:550:39:58

# Played by the gasworks band perchance

0:39:580:40:01

# On the ca-a-a-lm air came flo-o-o-ating down

0:40:010:40:07

# I thought I could hear the spurious tone

0:40:100:40:12

# Of the cornet, clarinet and big trombone

0:40:120:40:14

# Fiddle, cello, big bass drum...

0:40:140:40:16

LOUD BLAST OF DRUM DROWNS OUT VOCALS

0:40:160:40:17

LAUGHTER

0:40:170:40:19

# Far away, as in a trance, I heard the sound of the Floral Dance... #

0:40:190:40:24

# Tiddlywinks, old man, suck a lemon if you can

0:40:250:40:27

# If you can't suck a lemon, suck an old tin can

0:40:270:40:29

# My ding-a-ling, my ding-a-ling... #

0:40:290:40:32

MAN SHOUTS

0:40:320:40:34

Cease? You mean "toss it."

0:40:360:40:38

Follow the stick.

0:40:410:40:43

# I felt so lonely standing there

0:40:430:40:46

# And I could only stand and swear... #

0:40:460:40:48

Stare. Sorry, sir.

0:40:480:40:49

# For I had no friend with me

0:40:490:40:52

# Lonely I would have to be

0:40:520:40:54

# In that quaint old Cornish town

0:40:540:40:56

# When suddenly hurrying down the lane

0:41:000:41:03

# A figure I knew I saw quite plain

0:41:030:41:05

# Twas Fanny from the fish shop!

0:41:050:41:07

# With outstretched arms I rushed along

0:41:070:41:10

# And carried her into that merry throng... #

0:41:100:41:12

Up and over, Fanny, show 'em what you're made of. Haway!

0:41:120:41:15

# And I fiddled, went dancing along... #

0:41:150:41:20

LAUGHTER

0:41:230:41:25

# The spurious tone of the cornet, clarinet and big trombone

0:41:250:41:28

# Fiddle, cello...

0:41:280:41:29

# Bassoon, flute and euphonium

0:41:310:41:33

# Each one making the most of his chance

0:41:330:41:34

# All together in the Floral Dance

0:41:340:41:37

# Dancing here, dancing there, jigging, jogging everywhere

0:41:390:41:43

# Up and down, around the town

0:41:430:41:45

# Hurrah for the Cornish Floral Dance! #

0:41:450:41:52

CHEERING

0:41:520:41:54

CHEERING CONTINUES

0:42:510:42:55
