: Mr Laurel and Mr Hardy

in a special edition of Omnibus
Cuckoo
In the 1930s they were the movies' regular ' Full Supporting Programme ': we loved them, we all imitated them. In Germany they were known as Dick and Dorf; in Italy, Crick and Crok; in Poland, Flip and Flap. Churchill loved their films; so did Stalin. They are the eternal Fat and the Thin, the Fiddle and the Bow. Today their films are perhaps more popular than ever before. What makes their humour tick? What kind of human beings were they?
Tonight's Omnibus celebrates Stan and Ollie-Laurel and Hardy: their innocence, their dumbness, their zany logic - and the working companionship of two gentle men.
With extracts from a great many of their vintage comedies; some rare film; and contributions from Jerry Lewis , Marcel Marceau
Spike Milligan , Bob Monkhouse Dilys Powell , Hal Roach
Kenneth Tynan , Dick Van Dyke and many others.
Commentary spoken by Eric Morecambe and Ernie Wise

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
