The genius of Bill Bailey

Paul Merton followed by Bill Bailey, a BBC2 comedy treat. Bill had the BBC Concert Orchestra as his backing band. Sublime was Saint Saens The Swan (oh yes this blog does have birding at its heart) played by Bill and the orchestra's percussionists on tuned cowbells. The William Tell Overture was played in Bill's Cockney style. Stunning, original comedy.
