Tony’s latest Radio 4 series The Byng Ballads about the female impersonator Dougie Byng was  broadcast at 3.45pm on Fridays 2nd, 9th and 16th December.

The series was performed and recorded in front of a live audience in Brighton’s Pavilion Theatre by Julian Clary.

A 3-part story about the life of Douglas Byng – the celebrated female impersonator of the 1920s & 30s. Tony met Dougie in 1986, just before Dougie died at the grand old age of 94 and saw one of his last performances given in the very theatre that Julian will be performing. Dougie was the doyen of the bright young things and a forerunner of glamorous female impersonators such as Danny La Rue or Dame Evadne Hinge. .
