    Dove - ???

    Arthur Fallowfield was a comedy character created by Kenneth Williams image

    extract from the link above...." Another favourite was Kenneth Williams’ country character, Arthur Fallowfield, who was based on Dorset farmer Ralph Wightman  who was a regular contributor to the BBC radio programme “Any Questions?” The scripts were full of innuendo and double entendre - on one occasion Horne introduced him as the man who put the sex in Sussex. Fallowfield’s reply to any question began: “Well, I think the answer lies in the soil!”

    Ah yes, it's all coming back to me now Dove.  I had it my head it was Bill Sowerbutts (could that have been his real name?) until Nut said it was Arthur Fallowfield.  Thanks for that.image

    Kenneth William's character may have been based on a real person, a lot of them were.

    Just  looked up Bill Sowerbutts on Wikipedia and it really was his name and he was on Rado 4's Gardeners Question Time.
