Dave Allen and Ivor Cutler together? Yes, I need to watch this. You are saying that now. You are welcome. A BBC production from 1974. Dave Allen also hosted “Eccentrics at Play” the same year for the BBC.

Dave Allen meets a man named Alexander Stuart Wortley who lives in a railway box in a suburban garden; a former robot-maker for TV who is married to Jill but pretends to fly Lancaster bombers; Red Indian admirer Edward H. Blackmore who with his wife was adopted by the Sioux; Snowy King who rides a very tall bicycle containing a circus menagerie; a Cowboy Preacher; Ivor Cutler the humorist poet; and a model railway enthusiast whose name sounds like Morton with a set-up which runs to a full 1938 St Pancras timetable.
