Today a successful painter in France, in the nineteen fifties and sixties Edwin Apps was a familiar face on British television. Born into a family of auctioneers and hop farmers in East Kent in 1931, a family break up led to his being sent to the Clergy Orphan School in 1940. Evacuated to a luxury hotel on the Cornish coast, he trained falcons and learnt Latin in a cocktail bar. At seventeen, he joined a weekly rep in the north of England. The 1949 Canterbury Festival saw him making angels' wings with Dorothy Sayers and rescuing her from a bomb crater after a festive evening. Reluctant National Service, the Central School, touring in the fifties, theatrical landladies, live television comedy with Jimmy Edwards and Harry Worth; visiting Corsica with Frank Muir and writing "All Gas and Gaiters," are all part of this amusing, fast moving narrative supported by a wealth of contemporary letters and seventy photos.

This book will be the first systematic and comprehensive text to analyze the many and contrasting appearances of the Church of England on television. It covers a range of genres and programs including crime drama, science fiction, comedy, including the specific genre of ‘ecclesiastical comedy’, zombie horror and non-fiction broadcasting. Readers interested in church and political history, popular culture, television and broadcasting history, and the social history of modern Britain will find this to be a lively and timely book. Programs that year after year sit enshrined as national favourites (for example Dad’s Army and Midsomer Murders) foreground the Church. From the Queen’s Christmas Message to royal weddings and Coronation Street, the clergy and services of England’s national church abound in television. This book offers detailed analysis of landmark examples of small screen output and raises questions relating to the storytelling strategies of program makers, the way the established Church is delineated, and the transformation over decades of congregations into audiences.

‘‘ Jimmy Edwards was a Great British Entertainer ’’ Ken Dodd ‘‘ Not merely a peculiarly British comedian but an authentic English character ’’ The Times The holder of the Distinguished Flying Cross, in recognition of his World War Two career with the RAF, Jimmy Edwards came to fame as an exuberant and bombastic, trombone-playing comedian in the 1940s, with early success at London’s Windmill Theatre. He went on to star on radio in Take It from Here and on television in Whacko! as the cane-happy headmaster of a run-down school for the sons of gentlemen. He was definitely politically incorrect and audiences loved him for it. While Jimmy authored two autobiographies, Wake Up at the Back There!: It’s Jimmy Edwards is the first book-length study of the comedian, providing both a full biography and a critical appraisal. For the first time, the full Jimmy Edwards story is told, with documentation on his relationship with his family, his domestic life, his “outing” as gay, and the man in his life. Jimmy Edwards was a complex human being, who embraced alcoholism perhaps as a means of handling his homosexuality. Ultimately, the gay life proved more of a concern to Jimmy than to his audience, while the drinking helped create a persona that the same audience loved and accepted. Presently and sadly, it would seem that Jimmy’s homosexuality has tended to diminish his legacy not only as a major British comedian but also as a genuine World War Two hero.
