On 1st April 1971, The Two Ronnies aired for the first time on the BBC. It quickly became one of the most successful and long running television comedy shows ever on British television and its stars - Ronnie Barker and Ronnie Corbett - became national treasures. For the first time, Ronnie Corbett takes us beyond the screen image of the much-loved show. He lets us amble with him along the continuous round corridor of the BBC, and plunges us into the nostalgic world of the legendary duo that brought us 'Charley Farley and Piggy Malone', 'But First the News', Ronnie in the Chair', memorable serials such as 'The Worm that Turned' and 'The Phantom Raspberry Blower of London Town', the elaborate musical finales and not forgetting some of the most beloved sketches of all time - 'Mastermind' and 'Fork Handles'.
But this isn't just a book about the adored characters of The Two Ronnies. It's an intricate journey back to the beginning of Barker's and Corbett's early careers - when their paths first crossed at the Buckstone Club and how the two came together to star regularly on The Frost Report. It's also about two exceptionally unique men - one a quiet, private person who found it hard to speak directly to an audience as himself unless he was in character, and the other outgoing and confident, with an acute sense of comic timing and ease with the public.
