Flanders and Swann (PBS, 1998)
This show was broadcast in August, 1998.
Michael Flanders and Donald Swann
brought their two man reviews of their own gently satirical songs from the West End to
Broadway in the early 1960s. The songs in At
the Drop of a Hat and At the Drop of Another Hat have been part of
culturevulture's cultural soul ever since. Flanders and Swann is a documentary that
includes archival footage of their performances.
We're terribly House & Garden at number 7B,
We live in a most amusing Mews, ever so very contemporary.
We're terribly House & Garden - the money that one spends
To make a place that won't disgrace our House & Garden friends.
We've planned an uninhibited interior decor,
Curtains made of straw,
We've wallpapered the floor.
We don't know if we like it
But at least be can be sure:
There's no place like home sweet home.
