The Two Ronnies – Ronnie Barker and Ronnie Corbett – remain jewels in the crown of British light entertainment, their legendary shows still enjoyed over three decades after their last work together. This special programme relates how, just before Ronnie Barker’s retirement, The Two Ronnies travelled to Sydney to make a series for Australia’s Channel Nine. These shows never aired outside Australia, and now for the first time British viewers will see the best of The Two Ronnies’ work down under. The sketches and songs are all screened in their entirety as they were originally intended to be seen. Members of the Barker and Corbett families also recall how much the Two Ronnies enjoyed their Australian venture.
