    Broadcast on BBC Radio 2 was a two-parter presented by Leslie Phillips, entitled Carry On Forever.

    It's no longer on iPlayer - http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00t37n4

    From Radio 4, Caroline Quinn presented an Archive Hour programme called Carry On Britain.

    Again it's no longer on iPlayer - http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00pr3d8

    Both of these programmes were broadcast in 2010.

    Matthew Sweet has presented a couple of short mini-series on film locations called Lights, Camera, Landscape. One of the episodes featured Snowdonia, which was used in Carry On Up the Khyber (and The Inn of Sixth Happiness).

    Not available on iPlayer - http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b007720f

    That's all I know about.

    I produced for Radio 2 'What A Carry On' in the early 90s...A one hour special with Fennela Fielding narrating...great fun with some terrific interviews...I think I have a DAB copy in the shed somewhere...let me know if you want me to find it?

    Found it...it is of course the master DAT recording... Behind the chainsaw!!! Getting very old now...it was actually called 'Carry On Carrying On' written by the incredible Ross Smith...who also recorded all the interviews on his trusty nagra, that weighed a ton! Putting it onto a master CD as I write...send a PM if you want a copy Billy, nice that someone might listen to these dusty programmes again.
