Synopsis:
Includes all six episodes from the ninth series of the BBC's 'The Morecambe and Wise Show'. Including guest stars Gilbert O'Sullivan, Michele Dotrice, Frankie Vaughan, Patrick Moore, The Spinners and Lena Zavaroni. The BBC's 'The Morecambe and Wise Show' was one of the most popular television series ever and represented the legendary comic duo at the height of their powers. In their magnificent sketches, musical numbers and magical tomfoolery, they would captivate an audience of millions and leave a thousand hilarious memories. The last series that Eric and Ernie made for the BBC, these episodes were broadcast in 1976, the year that they were awarded OBEs.
It ranks as one of their finest with the usual on-stage and in-bed banter complemented by superb sketches such as "The Hold Up" and classic playlets like "The Legend of Dick Turpin" and the Lady Chatterley-esque "The Handyman". With the inclusion of their most famous sketch ever, "The Breakfast Stripper" (where the duo prepare breakfast to the renowned tune), it is the increasingly hilarious musical numbers that really stand out. The fabulous pastiche "Slaughter on Western Avenue"; child star Lena Zavaroni singing "Something 'Bout You Baby I Like" and the duo's marvellous performance of "Wishing Well" all displaying the quality that put Morecambe and Wise at the top of the pack.
