For most - if not all - the 1970s, among the most popular of British entertainers were the comedy duo Morcambe and Wise. Their television shows attracted millions of viewers, although of course there were far fewer channels available forty years ago. Many world-famous entertainers were persuaded to appear on their shows, usually to have the mickey taken quite mercilessly. Yesterday evening, the Beeb broadcast an hour-long compilation of some of their sketches and song and dance routines, including this one featuring Andre Previn. Sit back and enjoy vintage, classic, English humour.
