four yorkshiremen sketch[edit]

On the 1948 show dvd, TBT and John Cleese both say that Brook-Taylor essentially wrote the sketch, with JC changing the escalation of poverty. Is there a citation for all Feldman & Chapman co-writing?

lost sketches[edit]

The 1948 show dvd shows that more than a few sketches did survive; ISTR that some tapes were found in Sweden, although the Bookshop sketch seems to have gone forever :(

"Honorary Vice-President of Derby County F.C." claim[edit]

The original articleoriginal article ( claimed that he was "an honorary vice-president of Derby City Football Club." There is no such club. This was later changed to "Derby County", which is at least a real football club. However, there is no evidence from reliable sources that I can find that he ever held this position.

As the "citation needed" was added in September 2010 ( and nobody has found a reference in the last 7+ years, I'm going to "Be bold" and delete this claim.
