The Show With Ten Legs

The Show With Ten Legs, 1978

Better known as a script writer, particularly for Morecambe and Wise, Eddie Braben also wrote and starred in a number of Radio shows for the BBC.  The Show With Ten Legs was his second stint on both sides.

Not much detailed material exists however we do know that The Show With Ten Legs began broadcasting in 1978 and ran for  one series.  Research shows two listing per week,one on a Sunday and one on a Wednesday, but we can’t be sure if they are repeats of the Sunday broadcast.


Eddie Braben and all star cast perform a series of sketches.
