An evening dedicated to the popular double act starts with this festive special of their show, aaalll the way from 1976, featuring a host of celebrity guests, including Elton John, Des O'Connor, John Thaw, Dennis Waterman, Angela Rippon, Kate O'Mara, Marion Montgomery and the Nolans. Most likely in spandex. Following at 10.35pm is Eric and Ernie, the BAFTA-winning drama charting the early years of one of Britain's best comedy double acts, focusing on the influence of Eric's mother Sadie (Victoria Wood). A chance meeting on the children's variety circuit sees the start of an unlikely friendship and Eric soon becomes the funnyman to Ernie's 'feed'. But as they grow older, the duo struggle to make their way in mainstream entertainment with a few dubious tours and an ill-advised TV series that has the critics gunning for them. Rounding things off at 00.05am, Victoria Wood narrates Eric and Ernie - Behind the Scenes, a documentary about the duo's early years, considering why they remain one of comedy's best-loved double acts.
