The Two Ronnies will always be instilled in British Comedy History. Their first series was shown in the year I was born so I'm guessing I didn't really see them until 1977 as I remember the Charley Farley and Piggy Malone series - Stop You're Killing Me (with Kate O'Mara). I bought this box set so I can see the programmes and series I didn't get to watch and to watch the ones I have seen, again There are too many sketches to mention but Four Candles, The Mastermind Parody, You Can Say That Again (where Corbett (as Bert) hesitates when speaking and Barker (as Charlie) finishes his sentences), It's a Duck (Corbett (as Sid) tries to convince his friend George (played by Barker) that a duck he has bought is actually an Argentinian racing pigeon. Some of the word play and sketches may be frowned upon now but doesn't take anything away from the brilliant writing and performances that will always make this set a Classic. A must have for anyone's collection
