Hundreds of hours of unheard recordings by British funnyman Peter Cook are to be released, almost 18 years after his death.
The satirist, famed for his near-the-knuckle comedy routines with Dudley Moore under the moniker 'Derek and Clive', left a hoard of unpublished work when died in 1995 from a gastrointestinal haemorrhage.
Now his widow Lin has given permission for a selection of the best recordings in the archives to be released, according to Britain's Daily Express.
