NotesThe County 77 show was made up almost entirely of "rejects". Two versions of this sketch had already failed to make it into Left Handed Screwdriver and Free Tenth Unit. Chris merged the two earlier efforts to produce what turned out to be one of the show's few successes. This was largely due to Colin and Lawson being just about the only LURG performers to use the mics properly and hence it was the only sketch the (outdoor) audience could actually hear! And this despite Lawson having tonsilitis and barely being able to speak.
