Throughout the 1970s and 1980s, Ronnie Barker and Ronnie Corbett's magnificent partnership became a cherished British institution. Their Christmas Specials were particularly eagerly awaited and, for many, they were the highlight of the festive television schedules. The 1987 Christmas Special proved to be The Two Ronnies last ever full show together, but by then they had left so many cherished memories.
The Christmas Specials featured extra special guests - such as Elton John, David Essex and Elaine Paige - and great Christmas fun, as well as the regular Two Ronnies fare of the opening and closing new headlines, party, allotment and pub sketches and Ronnie Corbett's shaggy dog monologues.
This collection will bring back all the memories of those shows including such highlights as Chas and Dave; The Milkman's Christmas Address To The Nation; Christmas Day In The Ukon; Game For A Trial; The Tree - an Extra-Festival encounter of the Christmas Kind and Pinnochio II - Killer Doll.

No Way Out
The Desperate Hours
1960s British comedy starring Harry H Corbett. Scripted by Ray Galton and Alan Simpson of 'Steptoe and Son' fame, the film charts the course of love of a Casanova (Corbett) who lives and works on the canals, breaking hearts as he cruises the waters.
In 1978, after three series, two Christmas specials and a full-length feature film of Porridge, writers Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais finally released Fletcher from prison. Going Straight went on to win a BAFTA and attract an audience of over 15 million.
Fletch is out. After spending three years, eight months and four days at Her Majesty's pleasure, the old lag is out of Slade Prison on parole. However, life on the outside is not going to be easy - he even finds Mr McKay in the buffet car of his train home.
Will his carefully buried nest egg still be there? Will he be able to manipulate his family (including a 17-year-old son - played be Nicholas Lyndhurst) as easily as the gullible Slade Prison lags? Will he welcome old cell-mate, Lenny Godber, now a long-distance lorry driver dating his daughter Ingrid? Or will the delights of freedom make him yearn for the company of thieves, fraudsters and even screws?
Big screen spin-off of the BBC's popular Seventies sitcom. Habitual criminal Norman Stanley Fletcher (Ronnie Barker) is currently 'doing porridge' at Slade prison, but only has a year to go. He and cellmate Lennie Godber (Richard Beckinsale, who sadly died shortly after filming was completed) are content to bide their time - until they accidentally become involved in an escape plan while playing a morale-raising football match against a 'celebrity' team. Desperate not to ruin their chances of parole, Fletcher and Godber find themselves in the unusual position of trying to break back into prison without being caught!

Ronnie Barker introduces this compilation of fondly-remembered comedy moments from the vaults of the BBC.

With a fondness for spoonerisms and double entendres, Ronnie Barker is one of the nation's greatest comics. Gathered together in this second 'best of' volume is a cocktail of his sketches and monologues from every strand of his long and brilliant career.
Loved by millions and collected here for the first time are the very best of Ronnie Barker's classic sketches, monologues, songs, and, of course, the fantastic two-handers that he wrote for "The Two Ronnies." Celebrating his genius for comic wordplay, this wonderful collection includes "Pismonouncers Unanimous," "An Appeal for Women," and "Swedish for Beginners," and the nation's favorite sketch, "Fork Handles." As talented a writer as he was performer, Ronnie Barker was behind the best known Two Ronnies' material. His comedy writing was so prolific that he began using the pseudonym Gerald Wiley while working on "Frost on Sunday," which he continued when making "The Two Ronnies," so eager was he to ensure that his writing was judged on its merit alone. Showcasing the work of a true comic icon, and one of the best writers and comedians of the twentieth century, "Fork Handles" is every bit as warm and funny as Ronnie Barker himself. "With a foreword by Ronnie Corbett."
The complete tenth series of the long-running BBC comedy sketch show hosted by Ronnie Barker and Ronnie Corbett. A popular culture institution in its own lifetime, the programme begins and ends with the pair seated behind a desk reading quick-fire 'news' reports. In between, 'in a packed programme tonight...', there are sketches, drama serials, musical routines and a rambling monologue from Ronnie Corbett, before the pair sign off with their famous catchphrase: 'It's goodnight from me'... 'And it's goodnight from him'. The six episodes contain such material as Godfrey and Humphrey at their gentleman's club, 'The Squash Match', 'Minister of Cuts' and one of their extended silent sketches, 'Campers'. The guest singers include Elaine Paige, Barbara Dickson and Elton John.
Ronnie Barker has long been known as one of Britain's greatest comedy performers. But he was also responsible for writing much of the material he performed, often hiding the fact from the public by using a number of pen names. Showcasing the complete work of a true comic icon, All I Ever Wrote is a laugh-out-loud collection of sketches, monologues, songs, poems and scripts from every strand of Ronnie's long and brilliant career. With gems like 'Fork Handle's,' Three Classes' and 'Pismonouncers Unanimous', Ronnie's clever writing, double entendres and spoonerisms will bring a smile to your face, as you rediscover some of the twentieth century's finest comedy moments.
