    Black Cinderella Two Goes East was a radio pantomime broadcast on BBC Radio 2 on 25 December 1978. The programme is notable for being one of only a few radio programmes (co)-produced by Douglas Adams while he was employed by the BBC as a radio producer.
    The hour-long programme was written by Clive Anderson and Rory McGrath and was co-produced by Douglas Adams and John Lloyd.
    It is also notable for featuring performances by John Cleese (The Fairy God Person), Peter Cook (Prince Disgusting), The Goodies; Bill Oddie, Tim Brooke-Taylor and Greame Garden, John Pardoe (Liberal MP who faced Thatcher in the 1964 General Election) as the Fairy tale Liberal Prime Minister and David Hatch (Controller of BBC Radio)
    Featuring sketches and songs with a decidedly Python-esque slant, this would be a festive treat for all vintage comedy fans
