Jim Norton (Father Ted) stars as the Stan Laurel, who somewhat reluctantly goes to visit his friend and long-time collaborator Oliver Hardy (Trevor Cooper) on his death bed in l957. The story reflects the lives and work of Stan and Ollie in a series of flashbacks, and portrays the conversation between the two men as they bid their final farewells after a lifetime of sharing the world's spotlight. Making over 100 films together Laurel and Hardy remain one of the most popular and critically acclaimed comedy double acts of all time. This fascinating drama from the BBC is a must for all their fans.
