Wind the clock back to post-war Britain. Those were the days when ‘coming out’ was something debutantes did, everything stopped for tea . . . and one of the most popular programmes on the radiogram was Dick Barton – Special Agent.

Each week millions tuned into this light entertainment show and listened as Dick championed the good, foiled the bad and ensured England remained forever spiffing!
