Ronnie Corbett: Good evening! It's wonderful to be back with you again, isn't it, Ronnie?
Ronnie Barker: Indeed it is. And in a packed programme tonight, I shall be having a word with a man who goes in for meditation, because he thinks it's better than sitting around doing nothing.
Ronnie Corbett: And we'll be talking to a car designer who's crossed Toyota with Quasimodo and come up with The Hatchback of Notre Dame.
Ronnie Barker: And we had hoped to have been bringing you Arthur the Human Chameleon, but this afternoon, he crawled across a tartan rug and died of exhaustion. But first, the news: The House of Commons was sealed off today after police chased an escaped lunatic through the front door during Prime Minister's question time. A spokesman at Scotland Yard said it was like looking for a needle in a haystack.
Ronnie Corbett: West Mersea police announced tonight that they wish to interview a man wearing high heels and frilly knickers, but the Chief Constable said they must wear their normal uniforms.
Ronnie Barker: Many old music hall fans were present at the funeral today of Fred "Chuckles" Jenkins, Britain's oldest and unfunniest comedian. In tribute, the vicar read out one of Fred's jokes, and the congregation had two minutes silence.
Ronnie Corbett: Latest on the bullion robbery: At Wansforth Police Station, a man who's as deaf as a post, and doesn't speak english, with a terrible stutter, bad breath and squeaky shoes, is not helping the police with their inquiries one little bit.
Ronnie Barker: At London's Heathrow, senior customs officer Seaforth Mumbly retired today. He shook hands with passengers passing through the customs, and confiscated a gold watch for himself.
Ronnie Corbett: There was a fire at the main Inland Revenue office in London today, but it was put out before any serious good was done.
Ronnie Barker: The search for the man who terrorizes nudist camps with a bacon slicer goes on. Inspector Lemuel Jones had a tip-off this morning, but hopes to be back on duty tomorrow.
Ronnie Corbett: Finally, it was revealed in a government survey published today that the Prime Minister is doing the work of two men. Laurel and Hardy.
Ronnie Barker: And now a sketch, featuring Mr Ronnie Corbett, whose wife tries not to bring out the beast in him, because she's afraid of mice.

only put the disc on last night & watched a few episodes, in the episode that they went back through time, & she is wearing ''cave woman'' attire you can see why see was a pin up, with the word pin most apt, nice set of pins as a 37 year old back then

RIP Noel............who was asked by several children over the years ''why don't you know Clark Kent & Superman is one in the same ? she replies ''i don't/didn't want to lose my job''

" Im afraid to wake up each morning.
I cant believe all this has happened to me
I just hope it lasts
Thanks to all my faithful teenage fans
I have made a lot of money all of a sudden
Just 2 years ago I was driving a truck for $15 a week ... and before that I was knocking down $14 a week as a theatre usher
Then one day my father gave me a guitar
Although I didnt know a B-flat from C-sharp , I finally learnt to play
My career as a singer started by accident
I went into a record shop to make a record for my mother just to surprise her
Some man in there heard me sing and said he might call me sometime."


The man did contact the singer about 18 months later
That man was Sam Phillips of Sun Records
The singer was Elvis Presley

Elvis
Born 8/1/1935
Died on this day 16/8/1977

I can remember him hosting The Penthouse Club in the early/mid 70s and someone at Westies (I think Oberon Pirak) had convinced (or paid) him to become a Westies fan. (This was when Fos Williams had recently taken over and they were promoting the club as being on the up). I remember Big Bob wearing our vertical striped jumper on the show.

Yes Vaughn was as close to a "character" actor as Hollywood had.
Rarely played the #1 star, but made big contributions in his movies in the more understated roles.

The Man From U.N.C.L.E was his main gig I think that he will be known for.
