NEW SERIES - 'Comedy Writing Legends' - Ep1 PART TWO - Marks and Gran - from Rik Mayall & The New Statesman to Goodnight Sweetheart
COMEDY WRITING LEGENDS - MARKS AND GRAN - EPISODE 1 PART TWO
We kick off our Comedy Writing Legends series with two programmes celebrating the work of Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran. The pair started working together from a very young age and have had decades of success penning some classic British shows including Birds of a Feather, Shine on Harvey Moon and Roll Over Beethoven.
Here in Part 2 they tell Distinct Nostalgia about working with Rik Mayall and creating 'The New Statesman' as well as their long running, often repeated time travelling comedy hit Goodnight Sweetheart.
Future programmes in the Comedy Writing Legends series will meet the talent behind Porridge, One Foot in the Grave, Man About the House and Second Thoughts among many other great shows.
Look out for lots of interesting shows over Christmas. More on Corrie at 60, a new drama with June Brown and an interview with Syd Little remembering his comedy partner Eddie Large who died earlier this year from Covid-19 complications.
