Each episode of this series follows the career and personal story of legendary celebrities from the world of comedy and showbiz, using their most memorable moments from British TV chat shows and beyond.

Voiced by actress and comedian Dawn French, the series features Kenneth Williams, The Two Ronnies, Les Dawson, Oliver Reed, Spike Milligan, and the partnership of Peter Cook and Dudley Moore.

By mining the archives, each episode pieces together their lives, as told down the years to the master interviewers, Parkinson, Harty, Wogan, Bragg, Ross, Norton, as well as inquisitors, such as Michael Aspel, Des O'Connor, and Mavis Nicholson.

Away from the chat show studios, other footage from highly personal documentary interviews and radio specials will give audiences a rare insight into the fascinating lives of these icons.
