Gorden Kaye On Wogan

Here’s an interview from Wogan, with Gordon Kaye, just as the first series of ‘Allo ‘Allo was gathering an audience, and the second series had just been shot.

I still find it odd hearing Kaye’s real accent, and it’s interesting to hear him make reference to Secret Army.

Why are there bits of the Every Second Counts set behind Wogan? (There’s not, they don’t even look like that, but that’s what it reminded me of).

It feels odd to be able to hear the audience throughout this – not something you notice usually. You can even hear the Floor Manager, I think, telling them to wind it up, around the 6m55s mark.

There’s a moment in this where Terry looks exactly like his Spitting Image puppet.
