I never tire of watching it, and Ronnie C's facial expressions and actions are a master-class in comedy.

Can you believe it was actually banned for 40 odd years?

FANTASTIC ALAN.

So many childhood memories of the late 50's.

And of course the great Sir Spike Milligoon went on to do the brilliant Q8 TV series !

Incidently, I see some of his family are up in arms over the disappearance of part of his head-stone in Ireland, which read, so very typically.....

A lovely lovely tribute to the writing genius of the late and very great Eric Sykes, Alan.

Surely another man from entertainment that warranted a knighthood.

No satire - No smut or blue humour - Just pure slapstick genius.

After today's threads about a Daily Telegraph article on CH I looked on line hoping to find it - I failed.

However I did find an article about the exam syllabus and UK schools seriously letting pupils down in the area of IT. The article points to various programs created to teach youngsters (well, from age 6) basic computer coding and other skills. If anyone else is interested the details are about one third of the way down:
