Three decades of spot-on spoofery, zesty playing and cinematic ambition are celebrated in this two-hour tribute. It was 2 November 1982 when we first heard a cheesy organ rendition of Quando Quando Quando, and saw a symbolic bomb fall on middle England. They’ve been falling ever since.
Ahead of Wednesday’s new Comic Strip, Gold plucks the highlights and jaw-dropping back-stage stories (the near deaths, the seat-of-pants filming) from a 40-film catalogue.
Healthily disrespectful contributors include Jeff Beck and Harry Enfield, there’s a smattering of unseen footage, plus location revisits and Jim Broadbent’s hilarious take on Jack Regan from The Sweeney.
Celebration of the comedy team, examining the influence of its programmes on British television. Featuring appearances from famous fans and members of the original 1980s cast.
