Prolific television producer, director and commissioner Paul Jackson is to celebrate The Two Ronnies on Monday 3rd June.

Appearing in discussion with BFI TV consultant Dick Fiddy, it is the first of two events during 2024. Later in the year he will return to discuss The Young Ones and Red Dwarf.

Both live gigs also offer meet-and-greet opportunities and will take place at the renowned Phoenix Arts Club in Central London, with tickets for June's Two Ronnies celebration now on sale.

Producers Misty Moon say: "Paul started his career at the BBC in the seventies, working on shows such as The Two Ronnies, Top Of The Pops, The Generation Game and Blankety Blank. He has a distinguished record as a programme maker. His hits include cult sci-fi sitcom Red Dwarf, Three Of A Kind, and The Young Ones, all for the BBC; Girls On Top for Central and Don't Miss Wax and Saturday Live for Channel 4.

"This special gig celebrates his time working on The Two Ronnies. Joining Paul on stage will be his friend and BFI Archive TV Programmer Dick Fiddy. With clips from the archives Paul and Dick will relive some of the best moments from this BBC classic. There will also be special guests who will be talking about their time on the show, including Hammer and Bond beauty Madeline Smith."

The Two Ronnies - The Complete Collection

From 1971 to 1987, over 12 series, four Christmas specials and two classic silent films, Ronnie Barker and Ronnie Corbett combined to produce one of the most popular television comedy series ever made.

From their introduction, "And in a packed programme tonight..." to the "Goodnight from him" finale, viewers savoured every moment. The 'Four Candles' and 'Mastermind' sketches, the Piggy Malone and Charley Farley stories and the hilarious musical numbers have a special place in viewers' hearts, but these series are packed with so many moments of comic genius.

This mammoth 27-disc collection contains 93 full episodes of The Two Ronnies, their acclaimed silent comedy films By The Sea and The Picnic, as well as The One Ronnie, Ronnie Corbett's 2010 sketch show featuring Harry Enfield, Catherine Tate, Rob Brydon, Miranda Hart, Matt Lucas and David Walliams.
