Mel Smith, who died early this year aged 60, was one of this country's most celebrated and recognisable comedy stars. But Mel was not simply a gifted comic actor; he was a theatre and film director, a successful businessman, a racing enthusiast and the showbiz bon viveur of his generation.

In this documentary his friends, colleagues and admirers, including Griff Rhys Jones, John Lloyd, Richard Curtis and many others, talk about Mel's unique talents both in front of and behind the camera. The film also returns to Oxford University and then Latimer School where Mel's talents were first spotted as a precocious schoolboy.

With exclusive home video footage, rare archive plus many of the classic sketches, this is a tribute to a much-loved and much-missed comedy legend.
