in a special edition of Omnibus
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.
