Eric, Ernie and Shirley Bassey

Eric and Ernie became Britain's premiere comedy double act on both stage and screen thanks to their much-loved sketches and routines that showcased a comedy timing that was crafted thanks to decades of working together.

In this new series, those who knew the duo best, including Eric's wife Joan, talk about what made them the undisputed kings of British comedy. Each of the five episodes of this definitive guide to Eric and Ernie examines a particular theme, including their journey From Stage To Screen, The Sketches, The Plays, The Guests and The Christmas Specials, and features some rare and unseen footage.

Famous faces, including Chris Tarrant, Stephen Mangan and Hugh Dennis talk about their love of the pair's comedy, while long-time fan (and star of drama Eric And Ernie) Victoria Wood, narrates the series.
