1. Who said of Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band “I can only say that The Beatles having made their name in the narrow emotional and harmonic world of teenage pop, are now floating away on their own cloud. I doubt whether their own fancies and imagination are strong enough to command an audience instead of collaborating with it.”?
2. Of whom did Beryl Reid say, “I felt much richer by working with her. A lovely lovely lady. Dead sexy. She used to knit balaclavas for Harry Secombe.”?
3. Who said, “I am a very bad radio actor” and “I guess you might call me a character actor and it’s taken me a lot of hard work to get that character.”?
4. Who is Dennis Potter describing? “He’s like that bit in TS Eliot – he does a piece in all these different voices, a complicated perpetual parody. It’s funny, but it’s not real, and you’re always aware of that.”
5. Who described Melvyn Bragg as “one of our better second-class novelists”?
6. And who advised his mother “Get your legs around a good man. That’ll put you right.”?
No prizes, just a bit of fun.
