  The silencing of Ned Sherrin | the Daily Mail
Ned is still hopeful that the fat treatment will work, but 21 years after he first hosted Loose Ends, he is trying to come to terms with the question mark that hovers over his distinguished career.
Ned was then sent for a CT scan to rule out anything sinister — paralysis of the vocal cord can be triggered by damage during surgery or by tumours of the base of the skull, neck and chest.
Ned must do his vocal exercises for five minutes every hour, and is learning to live with the frustration of the unpredictability of his prognosis.

 Ned Sherrin’s Review Of Revue
According to Ned Sherrin’s comments, Christopher Luscombe is supposed to be playing a line-up of chorus boys, but unfortunately, though reasonably sung, they all sounded rather similar to me. However, Christopher Luscombe redeems himself with the next number, representing Jack Buchanan in the classic And Her Mother Came Too.
When Ned Sherrin came to interview the guest, the quality was maintained, for Sir John Mills was certainly the most interesting and charismatic guest so far, partly because it was living history, he wasn’t just relating stuff second hand, he had been there, but partly because he just has a charismatic personality.
Ned Sherrin’s narration goes on to relate how during the Second World War London was overrun with reviews, and he lists a litany of show names, but they are from the professional theatre only, (no mention is made of the number of amateur reviews prevalent in London that time).

Ned Sherrin is more than 20 years older than me so, like anybody born in Britain in the Fifties, I have grown up with the very dry Sherrin.
Sherrin is the son of a moderately prosperous Somerset farmer.
Sherrin is a national treasure: 50 years of brainy laughter liberally dispersed across the nation is a fine legacy.

 Ned Sherrin: The Autobiography – Book Review
We are left wondering what we are not being told until in the epilogue we find a suggestion that he is content to be a loner – but that counts as too little, too late.
No framework is created for this and, although it can be said that the longer the book the greater the need for shaping, the last three chapters turn into anecdotes and quotes about actors and others with no particular sense of placing save that the last chapter is linked to things heard at memorial services.
Sherrin’s book will remind most of his readers of entertainment that he has given them, thus making it a nostalgic read full of jokey quotes.

Today on Breakfast, we re-lived TW3's past glories, with Millicent Martin, the show's resident singer and Ned Sherrin, who produced and directed the series.
According to Sherrin, one of the reasons for the show's success was that it came, not from the BBC's Light Entertainmnet departnment, but its Current Affairs Team.
It even led to questions in the house of commons, when a sketch by the future MP Gerald Kaufman named and shamed 13 MPs who had not spoken since they'd been elected.

 screenonline: Sherrin, Ned (1931-) Biography
As Independent Television was launched in Britain in September 1955, so too was the television career of writer, director, wit, and occasional performer Ned Sherrin (born Edward George Sherrin in Low Ham, Somerset, on 18 February 1931).
A phenomenal success, the series established Sherrin as a force in television and ensured that the British comedy and political landscape would never be the same again.
By 1969, Sherrin felt a change of career was in order, and for the next five years.

He conceived the idea of a weekly TV programme that would 'prick the pomposity of public figures' and charged Ned Sherrin, the producer of Tonight, a lightweight, early-evening current affairs magazine, to go away and make it happen.
Sherrin already had experience of the kind of team he wanted to assemble (see Oxford Accents) and duly found them performing on the cabaret circuit.
William Rushton, Julian Pettifer, Cleo Laine, Yvonne Mitchell and Roy Kinnear starred, and the script was written by Peter Lewis/Peter Dobereiner, David Nathan, Keith Waterhouse/Willis Hall, Ned Sherrin/Caryl Brahms and Herbert Kretzmer; Ned Sherrin produced.

 Salon Entertainment | Neither a borrower ...
After Sherrin discovered that Stoppard would be working on the rewrite of Norman's script, he gave Stoppard a copy of the novel.
In his view, Stoppard made a "few affectionate nods" to the novel -- namely the scene in which Shakespeare practices his signature, and a scene in which Raleigh lays down his cloak for Her Majesty to step over a puddle.
While "Shakespeare in Love" is dubbed "the most enchanting entertainment of the year" by the New York Times, and Stoppard and Norman are profiled glowingly in that newspaper and elsewhere, "No Bed for Bacon" receives nary a nod.

 Playbill News: ON THE RECORD: Wicked and Cindy-Ella
It is somewhat difficult to describe Caryl Brahms and Ned Sherrin's four character musical Cindy-Ella, or I Gotta Shoe.
The authors call it "the Cinderella story told as a Mammy might tell the tale of Cindy-Ella to her little girl in a tenement yard in New Orleans," to which I'll add only that it is funneled through a British sensibility.
Brahms and Sherrin wrote the script and lyrics, most of which were adapted from what the liner notes describe as "Negro music." The music is mostly traditional, with a pair of songs from musical director Peter Knight and another two from Ron Grainer (who wrote the richly romantic Robert and Elizabeth two years later).
