The Golden Age of Television was blessed with some of the best-loved of comedians, but why are Eric & Ernie and Tommy Cooper and Frankie Howerd so fondly remembered, while Arthur Haynes and Charlie Drake and Harry Worth languish in the archives? These and other once-celebrated stars, from the silent days of Hollywood to the comedy club boom, at last come under the spotlight in this affectionate clip-packed tribute by best-selling comedy historian Robert Ross. These are the forgotten heroes of comedy... forgotten no longer! Britain's foremost comedy historian, Robert Ross has written a library of books on the history of comedy, including The Carry On Story and The Goodies Rule OK. His dozens of television appearances range from Blue Peter to The One Show.
"Robert is a fine writer, an invaluable comedy historian and an all-round good chap." Bill Oddie OBE
