Morecambe & Wise At ITV

Undoubtedly the best-loved double act that Britain has ever produced, Morecambe & Wise first came to fame in the mid-1960s with Two Of A Kind, their hit comedy series for ATV. Showcasing their mildly anarchic humour, impeccable sense of timing and keen eye for the absurd, its success propelled Eric and Ernie towards television superstardom in no uncertain terms.

By the late 1970s Morecambe and Wise were in residence at Thames Television, where their festive specials were as much a part of Christmas as turkey, tinsel and terrible pop songs! The Morecambe & Wise Show was massively popular with the public and its fast-moving skits and musical parodies have lost none of their warmth and humour over the decades.

This 14-disc set contains all 48 editions of ATV's Two Of A Kind (plus a wealth of special features from that era) alongside all 26 editions and seven specials of Thames Television's The Morecambe & Wise Show.
