Sunshine and Laughter
Product Code: 188481
The Morecambe and Wise Show was the crème de la crème of TV light entertainment from the late 1960s until the early 1980s. This is no simple, linear story of rags to fame and riches; Eric Morecambe and Ernie Wise learnt showbiz the hard way. By the time of their last BBC Christmas Show in 1977, they were twenty-four carat comedy gold - a national institution whose shows drew audiences in excess of twenty million. They also loved each other like brothers, and the audience repaid that love; they were the nation's best friends. HB, 320pp.
