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 - national treasures. For the first time ever, Ronnie Corbett takes us behind the scenes and into the world of The Two Ronnies. He tells the real story of the legendary duo that bought us Piggy Malone and Charley Farley, The Phantom Raspberry Blower of Old London Town, Magnus Magnusson and Charlie Smithers, Humphrey and Godfrey, The Allotment, But First the News and not forgetting the elaborate and hilarious Musical Segment. But this isn't just a book about the much-loved characters of The Two Ronnies sketch show. It is a story of a partnership and a friendship so close that throughout the years that Ronnie Corbett and Ronnie Barker worked together, there was never a cross word between them. An honest, funny and touching account of one of our best-loved comedy double acts.
