    A fascinating insight into the career of an amazing writer and performer. Ronnies early acting career helped him to create a number of classic comedy characters which I have enjoyed throughout my life.

    Really fascinating look into the life and work of one of Britain's greatest comedians, gives a brand new view of how his mind worked, the style was slightly odd at times but overall extremely enjoyable.

    Another inspirational comedy writer for me. He achieved success by simply writing year after year until people could no longer ignore his output. He was intimated by other great comedy writers - but was honoured amongst them as an equal eventually. Four Candles out of five rating for Ronnie.

    A good amount of RB's thoughts and memories - always better than just a load of dates. Is it just me, or is Porridge possibly the most complete sitcom ever ?

    I was really looking forward to this as I'm a great Two Ronnie's fan but I found it very dry and rather boring unfortunately. Such a pity:( I was really looking forward to this as I'm a great Two Ronnie's fan but I found it very dry and rather boring unfortunately. Such a pity:(
