The younger guy was Graham Moffatt, Herby. Classic and unbeatable comedy!!  8)

Lydia - don't know if you remember the mid seventies comedy series "I didnt know you cared" based on the Peter Tinniswood books.  We bought the first series on a DVD for only 4.99 (total of 7 episodes) and it was even funnier than we remembered!  Now I know I won't be disappointed I shall be ordering the remaining ones.

Graham Moffatt was only 45 when he died of a heart attack in 1965. I think Peter Kay has gone 'off the boil' recently.  :-\

The TV chef Keith Floyd died yesterday, too, from a heart attack. He was 65.

If anyone has time to watch it, there is one of the classic Ealing comedies on C4 at 1.50pm today - 'The Titfield Thunderbolt' starring Stanley Holloway.  8)

I probably first saw Patrick Swayze in North and South but has anyone seen him in "To Wong Foo Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar"   I joked to a friend that it was so unfair that he was good looking as a man but equally good looking as a female in that film (which is an old favourite of mine by the way)

Patrick Swayze's not dead, he's in rehearsals for Ghost 2, anyhoo I'd heard Patrick Swayze's family are most upset, they had booked Keith Floyd to do the catering and the deposit was non returnable.


Is that my taxi ?  :)

Hi Bill,
Couldn't think who he was 'til I played your link. Real name 'Ian George Harrison', apparently. Some people prefer the George Formby version, but I think he had a great voice.  RIP, Clint.
Here's another favourite I remember well:-
