Even more sunshine from the great and glorious days of BBC Radio's The Morecambe and Wise Show. Join Eric and Ernie in classic sketches such as 'speaking at the same time' and follow little Ern's writing career as he plans his own Memorial Theatre. Favourite guest stars include Penelope Keith, Des O'Connor, Allan Cuthbertson, and Brian Wilde with music from Syd Lawrence (of Arabia) and Peter Knight, and inimitable impersonations of James Stewart and James Cagney from Eric and Ern themselves.They've got charisma. You can see it on their shoulders.More

bit of fluff
nice friendly vibe and tribute to old vaudeville style--they are audibly enjoying what they do; but the lame sketches and pop-passe musical numbers, though accompanied by a very polished big band, don't hold up well these days
guest stars are accomplished: Penelope Keith's script allows her to point out that it's beneath her, which is supposed to be comic but it's all too true
one drawback: the voices of the 2 principals are not very distinctive from one another, so it's sometimes hard to follow the story with audio only
