On the box


The current issue of Radio Times has this glowing piece.

Also on Talking Pictures


On Friday 7th June at 8.00pm we have Laurel & Hardy, This is Your Life. The Boys are the subjects of the USA version. I have seen this before and in my opinion from what I can recall, the Boys look very embarrassed at being the subjects and give the impression of not knowing what to say. Still worth a look.

It is then repeated on Sunday 9th June at 10.35am followed at 11.05am by The Big Noise.
