The Benny Hill Show was a comedy show starring comedian Benny Hill, it featured Hill as a number of comedy charactors incuding impressions of many famous people of the time. The show was often slapstick in nature and would also feature his stooges Bob Todd and Jackie Wright. The straightman on the programmes was either Nicholas Parsons or moreoften Henry Magee who would also do interviews particualry with Hill's craracot Fred Scuttle. A feature of the show was the end credits which would feature Hill getting himself into some bother and either chasing, or on ocassion being chased, by mostly young woman played over a piece of music called Yackety Sax. The theme would be a key to the programme and it was at Hill's instance that this was played out on each episode rather than coming from a recording as he felt it would loose its appeal.
