Synopsis Edit

The West has developed a new missile which requires the breeding of the rare Tuscan salami, and Russian agents Grytpype and Moriarty are out to capture the plans for Moscow.

Background Edit

There was a musicians' strike against the BBC at the time, which resulted in the absence of all the regular musicians for the show. "I'm Walking Backwards for Christmas" had continued success when it was later released as a comedy record.
