Remember when we sang about folk heroes and watched the early days of film and television when villains had moustaches, wore black hats and kicked the dog?
Well this bright and breezy production will have you enjoying great songs and laughing along with film clips that take you back in time!
Her nostalgic selection of characters from folk songs and the early days of television are full of surprises, wit and emotion.

Hilarious film clips from old Westerns, Gangster movies and even cartoon villains, are interwoven with his personal and humorous insight into contemporary villainy, gained from working as an investigative journalist on series such as the award winning ‘Cook Report’.
