On BBC 2 tonight at 10

When I first saw the title of this programme thought we were in for a treat ...might still be in .....it's got to be worth a look, if like me you're a fan of Pete and Dud.

Jonathan Ross rounds off his BBC career this week with his final chat show on Friday, and this love-letter to comedy duo Peter Cook and Dudley Moore. Ross, a devotee of the pair's sardonic, surreal sketches, tells us that Pete and Dud were his first TV comedy love. Their series Not Only... but Also ran on BBC2 between 1965 and 1970. It will surprise no one to learn that the BBC subsequently wiped the tapes of many of its 23 episodes, some of which survive only in script form. Which is where we reach the chancy bit of Pete and Dud: the Lost Sketches. Ross's guests - including Alistair McGowan, Angus Deayton and Hugh Dennis - gather to re-create some of these vanished comedy gems. I hope it works.

"Well, the worst job I ever 'ad was...." Laughing

Thanks for the info Becks.. our recorder is set...
I loved their TV show at the time but to be honest, the first time I heard "Derek & Clive Live" I thought I was going to peg out laughing!
I was nicely merry at the time and just couldn't stop.. so much so it hurt.
"This bloke came up to me and he said you....." Laughing

Embarassed .. Very Happy

It's clear this was a labour of love for the people taking part but it only served to remind us there was only one Pete and Dud ....they were comic geniuses!!......was worth watching though if just for glimpses of the actual two .
