The Bob Monkhouse Archive is stored and managed by Kaleidoscope on behalf of the Monkhouse family. Originally given to the BFI, but now stored solely with us, the collection includes 35mm and 16mm film, a range of obsolete VCR formats and a huge library of modern cassettes. There are thousands of radio items, scripts and pieces of memorabilia. Bob's former home, ‘Claridges’, clearly was a very full house indeed.
However, the collection is far more than just the works of Bob himself. It contains rare and unique material from many comedy greats including Denis Goodwin, Tony Hancock, Tommy Cooper, Lenny Henry, Frankie Howerd and Jasper Carrott.
To raise funds for the Prostate Cancer Research Fund, enter a fabulous world of comedy on Saturday 24th October and enjoy the hidden classics found in Bob’s full house.

“Bob's Full House” – a comprehensive guide to the material within the collection will be published on the day. This paperback book will list the hundreds of missing programmes found by Kaleidoscope's digital restorers. Price: TBC.
