Hello all..
A bit of background to this famous soundbite.
As a direct result of this broadcast, "Continuity Suites" were introduced with an announcer monitoring the networks output!!
Good idea, but several other funnies have slipped through over the years

Cricket in particular.

"The bowlers Holding, the Batsmans Willey"
"Botham is at first slip, legs apart, waiting for a tickle"
(and after a direct jit on a batsmans groin)...."Well he seems to be OK now, He's taking strike......One ball left"

Who says Cricket isn't fun
