Les Dawson was a comedy icon famed for his legendary gurn and piano bum notes and hilarious characters. Unearthing unique previously unseen family footage and clips, we reveal a very different side to his very public persona and discover the real Les away from the spotlight, family man and comedian.

Teaming up with well-known fans including Mrs Brown's Brendan O Carroll, Jason Manford, Omid Djalili, John Thomson, and lifelong friends including Ruth Madoc and Gloria Hunniford as well as Les' wife and daughter, we also uncover never-before-seen material revealing surprises not just to his friends, but his family too.
