Series 1, Episode 2 - Richard Beckinsale
A touching and informative tribute to British comedy actor Richard Beckinsale. Good looking, natural and very funny, Beckinsale died of a massive heart attack whilst at the peak of his career, aged just 31 in 1979.
Archive clips of his TV and film career are featured alongside interviews with friends, co-stars and his actress wife and daughters, Judy, Samantha and Kate. His friends' recollections of his short life are particularly moving.
This episode appears likely to have been rebroadcast with some changes in 2007.
