Comedy

Mutterings continued.

Brit tv is looking good for the coming silly season:

From the BBC:
  • The last new Two Ronnies material recorded before Ronnie Barker's death last month, as part of their repackaged BBC ONE Christmas special.
  • A two-hour Goodies special on BBC TWO in which Graeme Garden, Tim Brooke-Taylor and Bill Oddie 'blend documentary, archive, sitcom and audience participation' as they relive their Seventies heyday.
  • A BBC TWO documentary about Tony Hancock, made with his familiy's co-operation which promises to 'challenge some of the best-known myths about the comic genius'.
  • An Arena film on writers Ray Galton and Alan Simpson, charting their work with Hancock, Frankie Howerd and creating Steptoe and Son.
  • Three Men In A Boat, in which Griff Rhys-Jones, Rory McGrath and Dara O'Briain recreate the Thames journey of Jerome K Jerome's Victorian comic novel for BBC TWO.
