Count Arthur Strong: Record Breakers

Taken from the DVD Count Arthur Strong: The Man Behind The Smile. Available to buy from

In association with Doncaster Cable Vision, we celebrate the career of stage and screen star, Count Arthur Strong: The Man Behind The Smile.

Count Arthur Strong, showbiz legend and raconteur, reminds us just what we’ve been missing since his last television series, ‘The Robin Hood Club’, was axed in 1960 something. With the added bonus of previously unreleased footage from Arthur’s career – ranging from Desk Sergeant in Dixon of Doc Green, to the one time host of Ask The Family – and a rumour of a surprise start guest appearance, the celebration of Arthur’s illustrious career is a show not to miss.

As Arthur himself says, “Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could just turn the telly on after a hard day at the abattoir…or whatever it is you do… and there I was, smiling back at you, in my own programme again, again.”

The finest raconteur alive — even better
than some of the dead ones”
