The Les Dennis Laughter Show

Synopsis

We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
Starring Les Dennis
Special guest star Joe Longthorne
Featuring Martin P. Daniels, Mark Walker, Lisa Maxwell, Bella Emberg and Jeffrey Holland
Also appearing CRAIG FERGUSON, GORDON KENNEDY, ALEX NORTON and the JEFF RICHER DANCERS

Les and Joe give Opportunity Knocks 1987 winners Rosser and Davies a run for their money. Lisa finds that her husband has become somewhat alien and far too nice. And there's more comedy adventure in The Twenty-Nine Steps.
Martin performs a unique card trick and special guest Joe Longthorne concentrates on impressions of famous women singers including his hugely popular take-off of Shirley Bassey.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
