Back In the 1970s, a television programme which frequently featured two adult men sharing a bed together would probably never have been screened.
Unless, of course, the two men happened to be Eric Morecambe and Ernie Wise.
The second of three programmes celebrating their genius and enduring popularity concentrates on the strange "domestic life" this comedy double act lived out in their shows. Not only did they share a flat but were often shown sharing a bed, with Ernie penning his latest literary masterpiece and Eric nursing a cup of cocoa.
Presenter Ben Elton is joined by two modern-day comic couples, Hale and Pace and Fry and Laurie, who salute one of Britain's best-loved comic acts.
More hard-hitting investigations and real-life humour from Esther Rantzen and the team. Special guest June Whitfield presents viewers' newscuttings and provides her own comments on some of the week's events.

Erotic thriller starring Al Pacino
The man lay naked on the bed, a single bullet through his skull. For detective Frank Keller , this is the grisly start of an investigation into a serial killer, someone who finds men through lonely hearts ads and cold-bloodedly murders them. But for Frank it is also a walk on the wild side as he begins a passionate affair with his chief suspect.
Director Harold Becker (1989)
The dynamism of the young singer/songwriter is captured in concert, in conversation and at play as she performs such hits as Without You, Emotions and Dreamlover. The show includes comments from her mother, friends, collaborators, singers and band, as well as some candid home movie footage.
