Penelope Keith throws a spotlight on Eric and Ernie's passion for music with a waltz through the archives, showcasing the most brilliant Morecambe and Wise routines and unearthing the stories behind them. Memorable productions from their shows included a parody of Singin' in the Rain, a chorus line of male BBC presenters taking on There Is Nothing Like a Dame from the musical South Pacific, and - because none of us have ever seen it before ever - newsreader Angela Rippon famously stepping out from behind her desk to perform a high-kicking dance. An homage to the Two Ronnies kicks off at 8.30pm, with episodes of Open All Hours, Porridge, Ronnie Barker: The Many Faces Of, Being Ronnie Corbett and more.
