The Two Ronnies

Hugely popular and long-running sketch show that established Ronnie Corbett and Ronnie Barker as two of the biggest names in British comedy

G'day, can anyone please help me, I am trying to find an episode of The Two Ronnies (please bare with me), in which Ronnie Barker does a sketch where he gives a speech, and some lines make up TV shows, as in Nationwide and Coronation Street, if I said he looked like Richard the Third it may help or my mind might be confusing Ronnie Barker with someone else. I can just picture Barker wearing black and hobbling around it's a bit like a Shakespeare play...

If anyone has any idea what episode is was or a YouTube link I will love you for ever, if I am totally up the wrong Gum tree can you point me in the right direction please.

Thank you

Strumpet. Wave

No, it was Ronnie Barker, with Sam Kelly, I believe.

Reminds me of that Cockney rhyming slang skit he did when he found a Richard the Third on the pavement, picked it up and put it on a wall. :D

Has anyone seen that episode of 'Fawlty Towers' where Manuel misunderstands things and Basil gets annoyed with him?
