I agree with everything said. But surely the real issue is: Why can't they make shows like these any more? I look at the TV and radio schedules regularly and just can't find anything, other than ancient repeats, that I want to watch or listen to.

because most of the artists listed above did their "apprenticeships" through the variety clubs (most now long gone) around the country before getting the big break.


Morecambe & Wise, Tommy Cooper, Ken Dodd..... plus all the others, didn't do 6 weeks on a talent show and then became instantly famous.... even Peter Kay (who I think is marvellous) is an absolute ranl amateur when compared with Eric Morecambe!
