Over 7 hours of great entertainment Educating Archie was comedy show broadcast from June 1950 to 

February 1958 

on Sunday lunchtimes featuring ventriloquist Peter Brough and his dummy Archie Andrews.

The program was successful despite a ventriloquist on radio seeming strange, though in the United States, 

Edgar Bergen with Charlie McCarthy, had also undertaken radio work.

 Educating Archie averaged 15 million listeners, and a fan club boasted 250,000 members.

In 1956 the program transferred to television debuting on ITV in 1958. 

The show introduced comedians who became well known including Tony Hancock as Archie’s tutor, who 

would greet Archie with a weary “Oh, it’s you again” and always replied to a put down by him with “flipping 

kids”.

Other ‘tutors’ included Benny Hill, Harry Secombe, Dick Emery, Bernard Bresslaw, and Bruce 

Forsyth together with a young Julie Andrews as the girlfriend of Archie. 

Later, Beryl Reid took this role, playing the St. Trinian-esque Monica with catch-phrases, “jolly hockey-

stick” 

and “as the art-mistress said to the gardener”. Beryl also played a young Brummie girl

catch-phrase: “Evening each, moy noyme’s Mar-leen”

Max Bygraves later played Archie’s tutor with catch-phrases, “I’ve arrived, and to prove it, I’m here” and 

“That’s a good idea … son !”. 

The duo recorded songs from the show on the HMV label namely “The Dummy Song” and “Lovely Dollar 

Lolly”.

All programs are just under 30 minutes long
