Beatles - Shakespeare Skit

I am going to try to start posting some Shakespeare-related YouTube videos here. This is a great one to start with, bringing together England's two greatest cultural exports: Shakespeare and the Beatles.

This is apparently from some early-60s British comedy show. They are performing a section of Act V Scene I of A Midsummer Night's Dream, in which the rude mechanicals present their play of Pyramus and Thisbe at the wedding of Theseus and Hippolyta.

Who played "The Wall"? He looks extremely familiar, but I can't find any info on the rest of the cast.
Thanks for your help.
