Morecambe & Wise: The Greatest Moment

Documentary and clip show in one, showcasing the best sketches from the inimitable Morecambe & Wise catalogue


Eric and Ernie kept us laughing over four decades and frequently broke all-time audience records with their TV shows - more than half of the entire British population watched their 1977 Christmas special.

But what is the quintessential Morecambe and Wise moment? Which sketch, routine or running gag best encapsulates the spirit of this beloved TV institution? The public was asked to vote for your favourite clips and the results are revealed in Morecambe And Wise: The Greatest Moment.

The show presents a history of the duo's working relationship, asks their closest friends and family to recount some of their favourite moments and is packed with classic clips including sketches with Andre Previn, Angela Rippon, The Beatles, Glenda Jackson and Des O'Connor.
