Morecambe and Wise on BBC2

In The 1970s Eric Morecambe and Ernie Wise became synonymous with Christmas. Their Morecambe and Wise Christmas Specials became a must-see on BBC Television on Christmas Day and are still repeated today.

The magic of Eric and Ernie continues to be enjoyed by fans old and new over quarter of a century since they made their last TV appearance.

As well as a welcome repeat of their 1976 and 1977 Christmas specials this weekend; a new drama about the pairs formative years will also be broadcast on BBC2.

I've long thought this would be a good idea having read several Morecambe and Wise books over the years and having heard interviews with the pair talk about their beginnings.

I am also be intrigued to see how Victoria Wood and Vic Reeves fair as Eric's mum and dad.
