A compilation of great gags and sketches from the incomparable Eric and Ernie, one of the best-loved and most successful comedy duos of all time.
"Uh ... okay"
Britain's best-loved double act is back in another sunshine-filled helping of unforgettable sketches and good-humoured gems from the radio series of The Eric Morecambe and Ernie Wise Show. These four episodes feature guest appearances from Gayle Hunnicutt and Percy Edwards, plus singers Anita Harris and Salena Jones.
Here are selected items from the Morecambe & Wise television show. Bringing us sunshine on this recording are "Ern’s magnificent body", "A visit from the police" and Ernie’s going to be "Bob Hope’s chief scriptwriter". Other highlights from Eric and Ern’s TV show from 1971 include "The diamond ring in the window", and "Carry on Ern". So, what do you think of it so far...? Vintage Beeb: classic albums first available as BBC LPs, now available to download for the first time ever.
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.
"bit of fluff"
At one time Morecambe and Wise were as much a part of Christmas television as the Queen's speech. This compilation of their best festive sketches, songs, and playlets covers the years 1969 to 1975, when the BBC shows regularly achieved huge audience ratings.
