Week in music: Ted Dicks
The composer Ted Dicks, who has died aged 83, was best known for the comic songs Right, Said Fred and The Hole in the Ground. The producer George Martin, who commissioned them, praised both songs for their 'clever lyrics and quirky melodies, which hung together so neatly, leaving plenty of space for us to create a sound picture. All we had to do was add the right sound effects and musical arrangements.' Dicks also wrote television scripts and theme songs for films and television, including the cult children's series Catweazle
